Intelligence, but Not Emotional Intelligence, Predicts Iowa Gambling Task Performance

Intelligence, v38 n2 p249-254 Mar-Apr 2010
The Iowa Gambling Task (IGT) is a famous and frequently-used neuropsychological task that is thought to reflect real-world decision-making. There has been some debate, however, about the degree to which the IGT involves cold (cognitive) versus hot (emotional) processing. The present study incorporated 68 healthy individuals and used measures of cognitive intelligence (IQ) and emotional intelligence (EIQ) to predict IGT performance. Higher IQ scores significantly predicted better IGT performance, whereas no EIQ-IGT relationship was observed. The implications of this research on clinical and experimental use of the IGT are outlined. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
