Abstract

Abstract Many studies have reported significant correlations between verbal ability and speed of retrieving letter names from memory. We present data indicating that the relationship is not task-specific. Rather, verbal skill and letter-naming speed correlate because both measure general intelligence. Our results highlight the importance of employing convergent/discriminant procedures when building cognitive models of aptitude.
