The Long-Term Prognostic Significance of Intelligence and Aggressiveness in Children.
Roff, James D.; Knight, Raymond
The correlations between four childhood factors (externalizing, internalizing, asocial, and IQ/school achievement) and adult outcome ratings were investigated with 45 males with a young adult onset of schizophrenia who had been followed into middle age and for whom childhood information was available from a child guidance clinic. Among findings were that low IQ-poor social achievement and asocial childhood factor scores were significantly related to unfavorable adult outcome and externalizing factor scores were significantly related to favorable adult outcome while internalizing factor scores were unrelated to outcome. Methodology for obtaining the factor analysis is discussed and charts showing statistical results are provided. (SBH)
