CONSTANCY AND IQ CHANGE, A CLINICAL VIEW OF RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN TESTED INTELLIGENCE AND PERSONALITY.
MORIARTY, ALICE E.
A QUALITATIVE AND CLINICAL ANALYSIS OF COGNITIVE FUNCTIONING WAS DETERMINED BY ADMINISTRATION OF THE STANDFORD-BINET INTELLIGENCE SCALE AND THE WECHSLER INTELLIGENCE SCALE FOR CHILDREN TO A SAMPLE OF 65 NORMAL CHILDREN. EXAMINATIONS AND OBSERVATIONS WERE MADE FOR EACH CHILD DURING HIS INFANCY, PRESCHOOL, LATENCY, AND PREPUBERTY PERIODS. ANALYSIS OF THE RESULTS REVEALED THAT THE CHILDREN FELL INTO FOUR GROUPS ALLOWING FORMULATION OF FOUR HYPOTHESES. CHILDREN WHOSE INTELLIGENCE QUOTIENT SCORES REMAINED CONSTANT AND WHO FUNCTIONED RELATIVELY UNIFORMLY IN VERBAL AND PERFORMANCE TEST SECTIONS (40 PERCENT OF SAMPLE) TENDED TO MEET THE WORLD PRIMARILY BY A PROCESS OF AVOIDANCE AND RESTRAINT. CHILDREN WHOSE SCORES SHOWED ONE OR MORE PERIODS OF ACCELERATION OR PRECOCITY FOR CERTAIN COGNITIVE SKILLS (25 PERCENT OF SAMPLE) USUALLY MET THE WORLD BY ACTIVE MOBILIZATION AND SUBLIMINATION OF NEEDS INTO A WIDE RANGE OF INTERESTS. CHILDREN WHOSE TEST SCORES WERE LOW OR SHOWED SPECIFIC DEFICIENCIES (9 PERCENT OF SAMPLE) SEEMED TO BE OVERLY DEPENDENT AND IN NEED OF AN UNUSUAL AMOUNT OF SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT. CHILDREN WHOSE TEST SCORES WERE SUBJECT TO IRREGULAR FLUCTUATION OR DECLINED WITH AGE, OR WHO SHOWED IMBALANCED COGNITIVE SKILLS (26 PERCENT OF SAMPLE) WERE THE MOST VULNERABLE TO ENVIRONMENTAL STRESS. TEST BEHAVIOR OVER TIME MAY REFLECT DYNAMIC INTERACTION BETWEEN CHILD AND ENVIRONMENT. RECORDS OF INDIVIDUAL CHILDREN ARE DISCUSSED. TEST BEHAVIOR FOR EACH DEVELOPMENTAL STAGE IS ANALYZED. A 127-ITEM REFERENCE LIST IS INCLUDED. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM CHARLES C THOMAS, 301-327 EAST LAWRENCE AVENUE, SPRINGFIELD, ILLINOIS 62703, 231 PAGES, FOR $8.50. (JA)
