Developmental Influences on Adult Intelligence

K. Warner Schaie

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents data from the Seattle Longitudinal Study on the similarity of perceptions about family environments of parents and their adult offspring and the similarity in such perceptions of adult siblings reported in adulthood. Perceptions about family environments are considered both with respect to the family of origin (i.e., the family setting experienced by the study participants when they lived with their own parents) and with respect to the current family (i.e., their family unit at the time these data were collected). Included in this chapter also are analyses of the relation of perceived family environments to reported current intensity of contact between parent and offspring and between sibling pairs.

Keywords:   Seattle Longitudinal Study, perceptions, family environments, adulthood, parents, siblings, offspring, cognition, family contact
