Intelligence and James Flynn
What Is Intelligence? author and “Flynn-Effect” namesake James Flynn figured in a New York Times article about the possibility of training certain kinds of intelligence. Meaning, learning what is supposed to be inherent! Flynn maintains that a lot of what IQ tests examine are traits that have significant environmental influences. Hence, the fact that, generation upon generation, IQ scores rise and rise, indicates that the IQ test that we use tests traits that are increasingly brought to the fore.
