Intelligence and the Factorial Structure of Person Perception.
Gardner, Thomas D.; Barnard, James W.
Person perception is used in this study to refer to the behavioral domain which is also called interpersonal or social perception. This domain typically consists of judgments of other persons' actions, expressions, or intentions. Three groups of 10 children differing on IQ and CA comprised the subject population. One group was gifted, one average, and one retarded. The experimental task consisted of rating the facial expressions in 34 photographs from the Frois-Wittman series. Four hypotheses relating structural complexity of the attitudinal domain person perception to IQ levels were generated. The results suggest that intelligence level is indeed a determinant of person perception. Several other areas for future research are mentioned. (TL)
