For various reasons, many of which are included in this book, I actually tend to agree with the author, and even if I didn't, his theory would be intriguing food for thought/5. Charles Spearman developed techniques to calculate correlations among multiple from PSY A02 at University of Toronto, Scarborough.

In factor analyses of any and every large and diverse collection of measures of mental abilities, however varied the content of knowledge and skills Cited by: The g factor (also known as general intelligence, general mental ability or general intelligence factor) is a construct developed in psychometric investigations of cognitive abilities and human is a variable that summarizes positive correlations among different cognitive tasks, reflecting the fact that an individual's performance on one type of cognitive task tends to be.

Spearman, in full Charles Edward Spearman, (born SeptemLondon, England—died SeptemLondon), British psychologist who theorized that a general factor of intelligence, g, is present in varying degrees in different human abilities.

While serving as an officer in the British army (–97), Spearman came to believe that any significant advance in. His Tests of Primary Mental Abilities were administered to a large group of children, and correlations were computed between scores on the various tests.

If there were no such thing as general intelligence, each factor would be independent. However, there were positive correlations among all the tests, with some more highly correlated than.

How memory and thinking ability change with age. Scientists used to think that brain connections developed at a rapid pace in the first few years of life, until you reached your mental peak in your early 20s.

Your cognitive abilities would level off at around middle age, and then start to gradually decline. Summary. The book traces the origins of the idea of individual differences in general mental ability to 19th century researchers Herbert Spencer and Francis Galton.
