Flynn effect Since the early 20th century, raw scores on IQ tests have increased in most parts of the world. The phenomenon of rising raw score performance means if test-takers are scored by a constant standard scoring rule, IQ test scores have been rising at an average rate of around three IQ points per decade.
Flynnthe author who did the most to bring this phenomenon to the attention of psychologists. Mackintoshnoted the Flynn effect demolishes the fears that IQ would be decreased.
He also asks whether it represents a real increase in intelligence beyond IQ scores. The phenomenon has been termed the negative Flynn effect.
However, later researchers pointed out this phenomenon is related to the Flynn effect and is in part a cohort effect rather than a true aging effect. A variety of studies of IQ and aging have been conducted since the norming of the first Wechsler Intelligence Scale drew attention to IQ differences in different age groups of adults.
Current consensus is that fluid intelligence generally declines with age after early adulthood, while crystallized intelligence remains intact.
Both cohort effects the birth year of the test-takers and practice effects test-takers taking the same form of IQ test more than once must be controlled to gain accurate data.
It is unclear whether any lifestyle intervention can preserve fluid intelligence into older ages. Cross-sectional studies usually show that especially fluid intelligence peaks at a relatively young age often in the early adulthood while longitudinal data mostly show that intelligence is stable until mid-adulthood or later.
Subsequently, intelligence seems to decline slowly. Their relative importance has been the subject of much research and debate. Heritability of IQ and Environment and intelligence Heritability is defined as the proportion of variance in a trait which is attributable to genotype within a defined population in a specific environment.
A number of points must be considered when interpreting heritability. Heritability measures how much of that variation is caused by genetics. The value of heritability can change if the impact of environment or of genes in the population is substantially altered.
A high heritability of a trait does not mean environmental effects, such as learning, are not involved. Since heritability increases during childhood and adolescence, one should be cautious drawing conclusions regarding the role of genetics and environment from studies where the participants are not followed until they are adults.
This shared family environment accounts for 0. By late adolescence, it is quite low zero in some studies. The effect for several other psychological traits is similar. These studies have not looked at the effects of such extreme environments, such as in abusive families.
One suggestion is that children react differently to the same environment because of different genes.
More likely influences may be the impact of peers and other experiences outside the family. Deary and colleagues reported that no finding of a strong single gene effect on IQ has been replicated.
In Dickens' model, environment effects are modeled as decaying over time. In this model, the Flynn effect can be explained by an increase in environmental stimulation independent of it being sought out by individuals.
The authors suggest that programs aiming to increase IQ would be most likely to produce long-term IQ gains if they enduringly raised children's drive to seek out cognitively demanding experiences. More intensive, but much smaller projects such as the Abecedarian Project have reported lasting effects, often on socioeconomic status variables, rather than IQ.
A study on young adults published in April by a team from the Universities of Michigan and Bern supports the possibility of the transfer of fluid intelligence from specifically designed working memory training.Petrus Nel, Marieta Du Plessis and Leon Bosman, Comparing different versions of the Rahim EI questionnaire in a South African context: A confirmatory factor analysis approach, SA Journal of Industrial Psychology, 41, 1, ().
