Two studies (N=4,261 persons) illustrate an inverse relationship between ability level and correlations among IQ measures. Low IQ subjects showed higher correlations than did high IQ subjects. Intercorrelations of IQ subtests, intercorrelations of cognitive ability measures, and correlations of IQ with measures of cognitive ability displayed the same effect. (TJH)
