The arrival of Dianetics in 1950 as a new science of mind created a storm around the world. Many "authorities" demanded proof of the claims made for results they had never achieved. Eighty people were tested with standard IQ tests of the day before and after receiving auditing. The examiners were registered professionals in the field. The results were overwhelmingly conclusive in favor of Dianetics. IQ on average improved 10 points where previously it was thought IQ could not be improved at all but remained constant from the time one was born! Other tests brought about similar results.
