The study of intelligence has always been indissociable from the study of individual differences. While much of the early literature focused on understanding the factor structure of individual differences in intelligence, differential psychology has also contributed a wealth of research attempting to determine which causal mechanisms are involved in the emergence of differences on intelligence tests. This has led to a fascinating diversity of perspectives, ranging from information processing theories to network modeling of variability.
With this Special Issue, we aim to further our understanding of the nature and driving mechanisms of these individual differences in intelligence tasks. All types of variability are of interest here, including inter- and intra-individual differences, in any population.
We particularly welcome submissions based on experimental research that explores one or several of the multiple determinants of performance in intelligence or reasoning tasks. This includes not only cognitive abilities (e.g., working memory capacity, executive processes, processing speed), but also less frequently discussed determinants of performance, such as motivation to solve a task, cultural familiarity with test contents, test-taking strategies, metacognition, etc.
Submissions interested in the structure of intelligence and related constructs (e.g., modeling of the factor structure of intelligence tests) are also welcome, as long as they provide new insights into the nature or causal mechanisms of individual differences in intelligence scores.
You are very welcome to share this call for submissions with interested colleagues and to let us know if you have any questions.
Please note that the “Planned Papers” Section on the webpage does not imply that these papers will eventually be accepted; all manuscripts will be subject to the journal’s normal and rigorous peer review process.
