And, my conjecture would be that performance on an open-ended IQ test
would correlate slightly better with *dramatic* real-world
intellectual achievement than performance on a timed IQ test.

(There are of course many jobs where highly rapid intellectual
performance is important, and performance on the timed IQ test would
presumably predict performance at those better.)
