Summary

Using data from a broader longitudinal study, this investigation explores within-subject and cross-generational stability of intellectual competence and the relationship of such stability to aggressive behavior. Data were gathered three times (when subjects' modal age was 8, 19, and 30 years). Initially, subjects included the entire population enrolled in the third grade in Columbia County, New York. While aggression and IQ scores were obtained for 632 subjects 8 years of age, samples available for multivariate analyses were much smaller. All, however, were sufficiently large to provide reasonable statistical power. Additional measures of IQ or achievement were made when subjects were 19 and 30 years old. When subjects were 8 years old, mothers and fathers were interviewed; when 30 years of age, data were gathered from the spouses and children. Measures relevant to this study were the California Test of Mental Maturity, school records of IQ, the Wide Range Achievement Test, Reitan's trail-making test, and a video car race game. Results suggested that aggression and intellectual competence are strongly related and that this strong relationship is due partially to the interference of aggressive behavior patterns with the development of intellectual competence. Intellectual competence and aggressive behavior showed similar patterns of stability across generations and marriage-pairs and within subjects. Early IQ did not predict change in aggression from childhood to adulthood. (RH)
