Having sketched out a model of how and when cognitive ability associates with heuristics and biases tasks in Chapters 6 and 7, this chapter uses the model to summarize the empirical findings on the nature of the relationship between intelligence and rational thought. It argues that the relative dissociation between intelligence and rationality is consistent with the tri-process model sketched in earlier chapters and reinforces the usefulness of that framework. This chapter revisits the Great Rationality Debate in cognitive science in light of the findings on individual differences discussed in previous chapters.

Keywords:   cognitive ability, intelligence, rational thought, rationality, Great Rationality Debate, individual differences
