The Genevan and Cattell-Horn theories of intelligence are compared. The theories are found to be similar in the following respects: Intelligence (operative intelligence and fluid ability) is conceptualized as adaptational in function; the products of everyday learning and crystallized skills reflect the impress of experience; one category of intelligence (operative intelligence, fluid ability) is conceptualized as prior or more fundamental than the other (learned products, crystallized skills…

The child's understanding of functional relations in the domain of liquid quantity

Four liquid comparison tasks were designed to assess children's knowledge of functional relations, one-directional compositions of functional relations (greater + greater yield greater) and

Contribution of Cattellian psychometrics to the elucidation of human intellectual structure

The development of a taxonomy of human intellectual structure has received much impetus during the last decade. Findings indicate that there are at least 30-40 primary abilities, rather than only the

Understanding Organisational Intelligences as Constituting Elements of Normative Personality

Intelligence and inefficacy set limits to the capabilities of achieving high levels of performance in organizations. Several forms of intelligence are widely referred to in the literature:

Any form of life is a complex system made of one, few, or billions of cells; each cell is an organism in itself, performing thousands of biochemical reactions each second, as a consequence of all sorts of stimuli/information.

Neurological soft signs and school achievement: The mediating effects of sustained attention

The three age 17 soft signs as well as age 7 signs were related to impaired performance on standardized tests (age 17) of school achievement and most of the relation between signs and school achievement could be accounted for by the variance signs shared with sustained attention.

Conduct disorder and cognitive functioning: testing three causal hypotheses.

A closer look at the data tentatively suggested that a broad deficiency in acculturational learning, rather than narrowly focused social cognitive differences or native endowment, constitutes a key element in the link between cognitive functioning and conduct disorder.

The mediating role of thinking styles in the relationship between adolescent time perspective and subjective well-being.

INTRODUCTION The mechanism behind how time perspective (TP) relates to subjective well-being is not fully understood and thinking styles might be potential mediators. However, our understanding of

Performances which are accepted as indicators of intelligence are interrelated in ways which indicate 2 broad factors, called crystallized intelligence and fluid intelligence, which indicate the extent of acculturation as it determines human abilities.

Piaget’s Theory

The following theory of development, which is particularly concerned with the development of cognitive functions, is impossible to understand if one does not begin by analyzing in detail the biologic

Experimental analysis of the development of the conservation of number.

An approach to this goal is to expose children presumed to be slightly below the age of onset of conservation to selected, systematically manipulated learning experiences, designed to call into play different factors believed to be important in the development of conservation.

Piagetian Theory and the Aging Process: Extensions and Speculations

There is little question that the work of Jean Piaget and his associates represents the premier theory of cognitive development currently available. Acknowledging the frequently mentioned conceptual

Epistemology and Psychology of Functions

Years ago, prompted by Grize, Apostel and Papert, we undertook the study of functions, but until now we did not properly understand the relations between functions and operations, and their

Analysis of children's profiles across tasks indicated that children develop quantitative counting strategies (but do not necessarily count accurately) before they develop number-conservation concepts.

Behavioral Development and Construct Validity: The Principle of Aggregation

Many important variables in behavioral development are presumed to be unrelated because of repeated failures to obtain substantial correlations. In this article, we explore the possibility that such
