Intelligence Research at the Interface between Differential and Cognitive Psychology: Prospects and Proposals. Technical Report No. 1.
Sternberg, Robert J.
Although there seems to be widespread agreement that new approaches to studying intelligence should combine the differential and cognitive (information processing) approaches in isolating components of intelligence, researchers disagree about how the approaches should be combined and, consequently, about how elementary components of intelligence should be isolated and what they are. This report proposes guidelines to help investigators make informed choices. The first section proposes guidelines for choosing among various methodologies for studying intelligence and then describes briefly some of the methods that meet these guidelines. The second section proposes guidelines for the specifications of subtheories of intelligence and illustrates how these guidelines can be met. The final section describes the direction in which the author believes these subtheories and methods should lead. (Author/AA)
