Developmental Influences on Adult Intelligence

This chapter summarizes the findings of the sequential study of personality traits and attitudes, with particular emphasis on the directly observed trait of social responsibility. The sequential study is part of the Seattle Longitudinal Study (SLS), first launched in 1956 to investigate various aspects of intellectual development from early adulthood to old age in a random sample of 500 individuals aged 25–95 years. The chapter begins by describing the work on personality traits derived from seventy-five questionnaire items in the Test of Behavioral Rigidity (TBR). It then presents data relating the TBR-derived personality factors to the NEO Personality Inventory. Finally, it discusses data from the Center for Epidemiologic Studies–Depression Scale (CES-D) questionnaire used as a subjective measure of depression in the study participants older than 60 years.
