      Way back in the s, even the book The Bell Curve (which really popularized the link between IQ and money) admitted that among graduates of Harvard, there might even be a negative correlation between IQ and income if the brightest students go into research where they earned a modest living, while the dullest went into business where they. IQ Articles > Correlation Between IQ and Success Correlation Between IQ and Success Simply put, IQ of a person measured by an IQ test is an index of his/her general ability to solve problems and understand concepts. IQ and intelligence are synonymous but not analogous. High IQ is not the whole and sole formula for success.

    The correlation between the two variables (intelligence and reading comprehension) showed very significant results in the areas of intelligence and reading comprehension that would be useful for education and curriculum developers in designingFile Size: KB.

    Having recently reread Malcolm Gladwell's excellent book: Outliers - the story of success, I've been thinking about the correlation between high IQ and success in life.

Emotional intelligence was measured by the Mayer, Salovey, Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test (MSCEIT), general IQ by the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale, and personality by the Neuroticism-Extroversion-Openness Inventory.

A decent book that uses correlations with anything greater than a regression value of 60 as the antithesis for intelligence and its correlations matters.

Introduction. In their book, “IQ and the Wealth of Nations”, Lynn and Vanhanen () present a table listing for 81 nations the measured mean IQ and the per capita real Gross Domestic Product as of (their Table ).

They subsequently extend this to all nations, using estimated IQs for the new entries based chiefly on IQ values for immediate neighbors (their Table ).Cited by: stars IQ is a riveting read that offers a fresh take on the Sherlock Holmes character. Having read a lot of formulaic, over-the-top, gimmicky books lately, I was feeling quite jaded -- to the point where I almost fell into a reading rut.

Thankfully, I came across IQ. I devoured every moment of this refreshing, smart, and well-written book/5. This probably won't answer your question, but there's a slight correllation between wealthier countries and higher average IQ, and there's obviously a correllation between wealth and using facebook (because if you're too poor to afford a computer/internet access, you obviously won't use facebook), so IQ and facebook usage are indeed correllated.

But hey, correllation doesn't really prove. Reading comprehension is a skill and can be learned by people with varying measures of IQ.

Since IQ loosely reflects one's capacity to learn, retain and relate new information, it inevitably has bearing on reading comprehension but other factors.

The fact that the correlation in IQ scores between identical twins reared apart is higher than that between fraternal twins reared together suggests that intellectual development is influenced more by genetics than by environmental factors.

In a recent study, Nikki Blacksmith and colleagues found that scores on the A-DMC were largely indistinguishable from IQ, with a construct-level correlation of (6). It is also well known that performance on measures of critical thinking, such as the Cognitive Reflection Test, is positively correlated with IQ () (2).

If you take a "real" IQ test (see comments below), then the result is a strong statistical predictor of multiple future life outcomes - income, education level, health, even longevity. IQ classification is the practice by IQ test publishers of labeling IQ score ranges with category names such as "superior" or "average".

There are several publishers of tests of cognitive abilities. No two publishers use exactly the same classification labels, which have changed from time to time since the beginning of intelligence testing in the early twentieth century.

IQ scores have been – Above average. Jensen () suggested that the correlation of IQ and income in mid-career isand this seems like a reasonable overall estimate for the IQ-permanent income correlation, too; the effect is probably somewhat larger than for males and somewhat less than for females.
