FFAI Psychology

Flynn effect

average IQ scores within the US have increased about 10 points over 30 years (similar in other countries)

increases primarily in low IQ groups; high IQ groups have remained stable or even are slightly decreasing

score increase may be in areas other than those explained by the "g factor"

tests are recalibrated so that the average IQ remains 100

also forces reinterpretation of supposed decline of intelligence with aging

reasons are unclear

it may be ending: in Europe, IQ scores stopped going up in the 1990's and have been declining in mathematical ability
