Intelligence Measurement and Mental Disorder

  • TS Egnal

Abstract

Certain quantitative intelligence test patterns which may assist in differenciating between normal, schizophrenic and psychopathic subjects are presented. Acute and chronic schizophrenics do not differ significantly from each other, but a distinct pattern emerges between schizophrenics and normals. This pattern is mainly reflected in the performance IQ. The IQ pattern of psychopathy is not very different from that of normal persons.
