    Charles Spearman William Revelle Northwestern University Charles Spearman () was the leading psychometrician of the early 20th century. His work on the classical test theory, factor analysis, and the g theory of intelligence continues to influence psychometrics, statistics, and the study of intelligence. More than years afterFile Size: 46KB.   General intelligence is referred to the existence of a mental capacity that influences the performance on cognitive level. The existence of general intelligence was proposed by Charles Spearman in General Intelligence is also known as g factor, but in simple terms, it can just be called intelligence.

    This chapter reviews major theories of intelligence. The theories are grouped into four major theory types: (1) psychometric theories; (2) cognitive theories; (3) cognitive-contextual theories; and (4) biological theories. Psychometric theories derive from studying individual differences in test performance on cognitive tests. Questions about the structure of human intelligence, Cited by: 4. In human intelligence: Psychometric theories labeled the “general factor,” or g, pervades performance on all tasks requiring other words, regardless of the task, if it requires intelligence, it requires second factor is specifically related to each particular test.

      Thurstone argued that g was a statistical artifact resulting from the mathematical procedures used to study it. Using his new approach to factor analysis, Thurstone found that intelligent behavior does not arise from a general factor, but rather emerges from seven independent factors that he called primary abilities: word fluency, verbal. The g-factor is comprised of subcomponents known as er, the g- and s-factors comprise what is called the two-factor theory of intelligence. g-factor: Some psychologist comes up with a test of mental abilities and gives it to a lot of a score is calculated and averaged across abilities, a general intelligence factor is established.

The approach of these pioneers of psychometry was, of course, inspired by some general ideas on intelligence, but the way in which they searched for tasks likely to measure it was very empirical. Binet, for example, tried various items and retained those that discriminated well between mentally retarded and nonretarded children, between older from younger children.

Chapter 4 - The Nature of the General Factor of Intelligence By Andrew R. Conway, Kristof Kovacs Edited by Robert J.

Sternberg, Cornell University, New York. It highlights that black–white IQ differences are more pronounced on highly g-loaded tests than on low g-loaded tests, g being the general factor of intelligence.

Black–white differences on the g -factor occur regardless of whether testing is performed in the United States, in South Africa, or in the Netherlands. General intelligence, also known as g factor, refers to the existence of a broad mental capacity that influences performance on cognitive ability measures.

Charles Spearman first described the existence of general intelligence in According to Spearman, this g factor was responsible for overall performance on mental ability tests. -factor analysis: statistical technique Spearman used to examine the correlation among intelligence test items -used factor analysis to come up the the idea of "g", or general intelligence, idea that there is one general factor that underlies intelligence, and this factor contributes to performance in any intellectual task.

The General Intelligence Factor. Despite some popular assertions, a single factor for intelligence, called g, can be measured with IQ tests and does predict success in life. by Linda S. Gottfredson No subject in psychology has provoked more intense public controversy than the study of human intelligence.

General introduction: Arthur Jensen - the man, his friends, and this book (H. Nyborg). The g Factor. Introduction. The higher-stratum structure of cognitive abilities: current evidence supports g and about ten broad factors (J.B.

Carroll). The remaining question is just how general the general factor is (Sternberg & Grigorenko, ). Some theorists, like Jensen (), believe that g and the various subfactors under it.

According to Spearman, a general factor, derived from factor analysis, that underlines or contributes to performance on a variety of mental tests Specific Intelligence (s) According to Spearman, a specific factor, derived from factor analysis, that is unique to a particular kind of test.

This work presents a balanced approach to the ongoing debate of just how general the "general factor" of intelligence is. It covers various approaches to the topic, including the genetic-epistemological, behaviour-genetic, sociocultural, and psychometric approaches.

Abstract. Chapter 1 introduces the general factor of personality (GFP), a relatively new concept in psychology. The first sections and subsections of the chapter are focused on the layperson correlates of the GFP, the presentation of historical precursors or forerunners of the conceptions related to the GFP, and the hierarchical organization of the personality structure.

He was an English psychologist who gave the concept of General intelligence or more commonly g factor through which he defined intelligence as a cognitive ability which can be measured and expressed numerically.

Using the technique of factor analysis, he conducted a study to prove this theory through which he observed and inferred that people. This edited volume presents a balanced approach to the ongoing debate of just how general the "general factor" of intelligence is.

To accomplish this goal, the editors chose a number of distinct approaches to the study of intelligence--psychometric, genetic-epistemological, cognitive, biological, behavior-genetic, sociocultural, systems--and asked Released on: Decem Overlap Between the General Factor of Personality and Emotional Intelligence: A Meta-Analysis Dimitri van der Linden, Keri A.
