65. There is a negative correlation between reaction time and intelligence scores. What does this mean? 17
A) There is no point in using reaction times to estimate intelligence. B) Smarter people tend to react more quickly to stimuli. C) Smarter people tend to react more slowly to stimuli. D) Laboratory tests of intelligence are more useful than pen-and-paper tests. Difficulty: 3 QuestionID: 09-1-65 Topic: Biological Basis of Intelligence Skill: Applied/Conceptual Objective: 9.1b Answer: B) Smarter people tend to react more quickly to stimuli. 66. What is similar between studies of reaction time, and studies of brain activity, for estimating intelligence of participants? A) Both types of studies reveal negative correlations with intelligence. B) Both types of studies reveal that intelligence is difficult to predict. C) Both types of studies demonstrate that intelligence is essentially sensory capacity. D) Both types of studies reveal the importance of overall brain volume. Difficulty: 3 QuestionID: 09-1-66 Topic: Biological Basis of Intelligence Skill: Applied/Conceptual Objective: 9.1b Answer: A) Both types of studies reveal negative correlations with intelligence. 67. What is the relationship between scores on working memory tasks and measures of intelligence? A) Positive correlation: smarter people tend to have a good working memory. B) Negative correlation: smarter people tend to have a weak working memory. C) No correlation: intelligence is not predicted by working memory. D) Causal: Working memory is the driver of what we know as intelligence. Difficulty: 3 QuestionID: 09-1-67 Topic: Biological Bases of Intelligence Skill: Factual Objective: 9.1b Answer: A) Positive correlation: smarter people tend to have a good working memory. 68. Which portion of the brain is most active on tasks involving reasoning, planning, and judgment? A) Parietal lobe B) Temporal lobe C) Somatosensory cortex D) Prefrontal cortex Difficulty: 2 QuestionID: 09-1-68 Topic: Biological Bases of Intelligence Skill: Factual Objective: 9.1b Answer: D) Prefrontal cortex 18
69. Recent research evidence suggests that people with poor cognitive skills are especially likely to overestimate their intellectual abilities, a phenomenon known as A) the double curse of incompetence. B) intuition. C) deviation IQ. D) positive eugenics. Difficulty: 2 QuestionID: 09-1-69 Topic: Intelligence Testing—The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly Skill: Factual Objective: 9.2a Answer: A) the double curse of incompetence.
