PSYC12 Lecture 8
iClicker
oask yourself about group differences in ‘intellectual performance
IQ differences in race (black to white) sex (male to female) SES (rich to
poor)
Why are groups different?
Majority said different socializing environment
Environment matters a great deal if you are poor
If middle class or rich then genetics play more of a role?
Genetics
oHigh correlation between parents IQ and child’s IQ
oBut then parents and child share lots of things other than genetics such as living in
the same environment, same home, etc
oSo we look at twins
Identical twins have 100% genes
Fraternal 2 eggs, 2 sperm so fraternal only share 50% but usually share
same amount of genetic material as other siblings
oCovariation between child and mother that were reared apart are more related to
each other intellectually than the IQ of the adopted children and parents who share
the same environment
Environment
oIQ of fraternal twins more strongly related to IQ
Even though share same amount of DNA as just regular siblings
oGenetic overlap of adopted child and mother??, and two strangers is 0
Plants one is genetic and one is environmental
IQ test will predict slightly different things for different groups of people
oExternal bias

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
