The association between the general factor of personality (GFP) and intelligence was tested.
The California Child Q-sort was used to measure personality.
A positive association between the GFP and intelligence was found.
The results replicate those of Dunkel (2013).
The purpose of this investigation was to test the replicability of the positive correlation between a general factor of personality (GFP) derived from the California Child Q-set (CCQ) and general intelligence. Analyses were performed using data from two samples of children in which the participants were administered both a test of general cognitive ability and had their personality judged by raters using the CCQ. The results were consistent with previous results in which a positive correlation was found between the CCQ Big Five-based GFP and general intelligence. Future research should help to determine why GFPs derived from some measures correlate positively with general intelligence while GFPs derived from other measures do not.
