The most widespread opinion concerning testing of subjects of different cultural origins is that the more learned subjects are better at solving experimental tasks than the less learned ones. The author has developed a cognitive test; its structure is similar to that of the so-called classical intelligence tests, but its content is unrelated to Western logic. In this paper, the author studies both the influence of familiarity with the testing material and that of level of education on the performance of African and European subjects.
