g versus c: comparing individual and collective intelligence across two meta-analyses
Though some of the findings are consistent with claims that a general factor of group performance may exist and relate positively to group performance, limitations suggest alternative explanations cannot be dismissed.
Adolescent's Collective Intelligence: Empirical Evidence in Real and Online Classmates Groups
Among adolescents, online groups performance was negatively affected by participants’ average perception of group cohesion, the difficulty of the problem, and the number of communicative exchanges that occur in the interaction.
Beyond IQ: The Importance of Metacognition for the Promotion of Global Wellbeing
Global policy makers increasingly adopt subjective wellbeing as a framework within which to measure and address human development challenges, including policies to mitigate consequential societal
Clarifying the Structure of Collective Intelligence in Teams : A Meta-Analysis
General intelligence is a statistical measure that emerges from the correlations among how well individuals do a wide variety of tasks (Spearman 1904). By analogy, collective intelligence is defined
A Mathematical Theory of Interpersonal Interactions and Group Behavior.
Emergent collective group processes and capabilities have been studied through analysis of transactive memory, measures of group task performance, and group intelligence, among others. In their
Sociality and group performance: Multilevel analysis focusing on social sensitivity and self-regulation
In this research, we examined the hypothesis that group performance will increase as a result of ac-celerating the timing of goal sharing and role differentiation by height of sociality of the group
Inter-brain synchrony in teams predicts collective performance
It is suggested that inter-brain synchrony can be informative in understanding collective performance among teams where self-report measures may fail to capture behavior.
Problem Solving: When Groups Perform Better Than Teammates
There is a non-linear relation between the collective intelligence of a group and the average intelligence quotient of its members depending on task difficulty, and this model paves the way for future experimental explorations of the link between task complexity, individual intelligence and group performance.
Neural Correlates of Group Versus Individual Problem Solving Revealed by fMRI
The study demonstrates affordances provided by the presented new technique for neuroimaging the “group mind,” implementing the single-brain version of the second-person neuroscience approach and finds decreased connectivity between the language and salience networks in the group compared to the individual condition.

The age peculiarities dynamics of the intellectual abilities of schoolchildren (IAS) in solving problems of various difficulties is studied, as well as the analysis of a computer database is


Evidence for a Collective Intelligence Factor in the Performance of Human Groups
A psychometric methodology for quantifying a factor termed “collective intelligence” (c), which reflects how well groups perform on a similarly diverse set of group problem-solving tasks, and finds converging evidence of a general collective intelligence factor that explains a group’s performance on a wide variety of tasks.
Identification of the Social and Cognitive Processes Underlying Human Cumulative Culture
The success of the children, but not of the chimpanzees or capuchins, in reaching higher-level solutions was strongly associated with a package of sociocognitive processes—including teaching through verbal instruction, imitation, and prosociality—that were observed only in the children and covaried with performance.
The "Reading the Mind in the Eyes" Test revised version: a study with normal adults, and adults with Asperger syndrome or high-functioning autism.
The Revised Eyes Test has improved power to detect subtle individual differences in social sensitivity and was inversely correlated with the Autism Spectrum Quotient (the AQ), a measure of autistic traits in adults of normal intelligence.
Human cognitive abilities: A survey of factor analytic studies
This long awaited work surveys and summarizes the results of more than seventy years of investigation, by factor analysis, of a variety of cognitive abilities, with particular attention to language,
Does Learning to Read Improve Intelligence? A Longitudinal Multivariate Analysis in Identical Twins From Age 7 to 16
The study highlights the potentially important influence of reading ability, driven by the nonshared environment, on intellectual development and raises theoretical questions about the mechanism of this influence.
Common heritable effects underpin concerns over norm maintenance and in-group favoritism: evidence from genetic analyses of right-wing authoritarianism and traditionalism.
The results suggest that, at the genetic level, in-group favoritism is linked with a system related to concern over normative social practices, which is, in turn, partially associated with trait Openness.
The Power of Personality: The Comparative Validity of Personality Traits, Socioeconomic Status, and Cognitive Ability for Predicting Important Life Outcomes
The influence of personality traits on important life outcomes is demonstrated, the need to more routinely incorporate measures of personality into quality of life surveys is highlighted, and further research is encouraged about the developmental origins of personality trait and the processes by which these traits influence diverse life outcomes.
Liberals and conservatives rely on different sets of moral foundations.
Across 4 studies using multiple methods, liberals consistently showed greater endorsement and use of the Harm/care and Fairness/reciprocity foundations compared to the other 3 foundations, whereas conservatives endorsed and used the 5 foundations more equally.
