Mental Abilities in Cross-Cultural Context.
MacArthur, R.S.
Discussed are issues involved in testing the mental abilities of nonWestern, nonurban ethnic groups. Within this context the paper reviews conceptions of intelligence and intellectual potential, prediction under fixed and adaptive conditions, the question of environmental influences, and some formal test factors. Examples are drawn from African populations and Canadian Indian-Metis and Eskimo groups. (NH)
