More wisdom from the archives!

The Ambivablog archives, that is.

As part of a side discussion on Human BioDiversity, intelligence and IQ came up. Commenter wj wrote that his scores on IQ tests were always going up. Amba responded with:

Your own personal Flynn Effect!

Actually, doesn’t sound mysterious to me — sounds like you were learning how to ace IQ tests!

Lo and behold!

Has a 15-year-old explained the Flynn Effect?

UPDATE: Basically, the 15 year-old has posited that, in fact, people have been learning how to ace IQ tests. Or at least do them better. It’s interesting stuff, honest!
