Cattell Culture Fair III

Cattell Culture Fair III

In seeking to develop a culture-fair intelligence or IQ test that separated environmental and genetic factors, Raymond B. Cattell created the CFIT or Culture Fair Intelligence Test. Cattell argued that general intelligence (g) exists and that it consists of fluid intelligence and crystallized intelligence. Unlike other tests, which typically use a deviation of 15 or 16, Cattell uses a deviation of 24. This means if same normally distributed population took both tests, the central 68.2% would fall between 76 and 124 on Cattell but 85 and 115 on Stanford Binet 5 (deviation 15).

    ...I had been fed, in my youth, a lot of old wives’ tales about the way men would instantly forsake a beautiful woman to flock around a brilliant one. It is but fair to say that, after getting out in the world, I had never seen this happen ....
    Dorothy Parker (1893–1967)

    One of the oddest features of western Christianized culture is its ready acceptance of the myth of the stable family and the happy marriage. We have been taught to accept the myth not as an heroic ideal, something good, brave, and nearly impossible to fulfil, but as the very fibre of normal life. Given most families and most marriages, the belief seems admirable but foolhardy.
    Jonathan Raban (b. 1942)
