Aim The objective of this study was to analyze the reassuring role of music associated with the personality traits of children during dental care.
Here we analyze the simultaneous relationships among five variables. Two refer to childhood (episodes of various forms of maltreatment and externalizing behaviors), whereas three refer to early adulthood (intelligence, personality, and socialization difficulties). The 120 individuals considered for the present report were invited from the 650 schoolchildren participating in the Longitudinal Study of Intelligence and Personality (Minas Gerais, Brazil). The complete sample was recruited in 2002 (T...

Intelligence research has shown that human cognitive capital is associated with the development of nations. This chapter summarizes the results presented in previous chapters in order to analyze the quality of the human capital available in the Latin American region compared to the existing human capital in a developed country (in this case Spain). Additionally, challenges and future prospects are discussed.

The area of sex differences is one of the most controversial subjects in social sciences, especially when significant differences are detected in the field of intelligence. In this chapter, we offer results from several studies conducted at specific and general levels of intelligence using a variety of different cognitive measures. Finally, we present results obtained from our SLATINT Project.

Three studies analyzed the effect of education and social variables on intelligence (represented by one cognitive measure and at the g level) using samples from the SLATINT Project. The results indicated that intelligence, as measured by one measure (e.g., the SPM or IR test), was slightly influenced by education or the SES of schools. However, when intelligence was represented at the latent level (or g factor), the influence of social variables decreased. On the other hand, school performance w...

In this chapter, notions of psychometric intelligence and cognitive psychology were used to analyze individual differences in the ability to execute cognitive processes. Specifically, the performance of good and poor problem solvers through the analysis of the types of errors in the SPM test were studied. Additionally, the relationship between creativity and intelligence was analyzed in middle-low and high cognitive performers.

One century of intelligence research, generally performed on samples from developed countries, has shown the existence of a general model of intelligence (or g factor). In our study, we tested this model using data from the SLATINT Project. A positive manifold of correlations was found and results from SEM modeling (Structural Equation Modeling), using the total sample and each Latin American sample, indicated that a single-factor model (or g factor) fit the data adequately, i.e., a general cogn...
