Abstract

Besides the favourable mental ability of the teachers, the hypothesised and expected age effects are confirmed: the fluid abilities decline with age while the crystallised abilities remain stable. This is a starting point for prevention and intervention. Training allows maintenance or an improvement of mental ability at any age. Multidirectional correlations exist between mental ability and personal factors. Since mental ability comprises far more components than those considered in this study, the research approach should be expanded in the future.
