Theoretical and Empirical Relationships between Personality and Intelligence

Part of the Perspectives on Individual Differences book series (PIDF)


What theoretical relationships have been postulated between intelligence and personality? The short answer is that there are very few in the mainstream of Western personality research. Even books titled Intelligence and Personality (Heim, 1970) turn out to be more about intelligence than personality. Despite the separation that generally exists between psychologists working in these areas, there are some cases (e.g., Baron, 1982) where there is clearly a sufficient communality of interests for the different approaches to overlap. This is evident for areas of intellectual functioning like creativity or cognitive style (see Brody, 1972), but the prevailing tendency is to treat intelligence and personality as independent.
