The Relation between General Intelligence Levels and Psycho-logical Symptom Levels of Ad-olescents

Oktay Aydın,Pınar Konyalıoğlu.


In this study, the relationship between gen-eral intelligence and psychological symptom among adolescents were examined. Partici-pants were 73 university students (age= 18 to 21). Their intelligence was measured by the Raven’s Advanced Progressive Matrices (RAPM); the Psychological Symptoms Scan-ning Scale-90-R was used to measure the participants’ psychological symptoms. Corre-lations were used to examine relationship, if any, between general intelligence as meas-ured by the RAPM and psychological symp-toms. Results showed that, in general, a neg-ative correlation was found between general intelligence level and general psychological symptom level and some psychological symptoms, such as somatization, obsessive compulsive disorder, sensibility and phobia. In conclusion, as general intelligence level increases, the level of psychological symptom decreases and as general intelligence level decreases, the level of psychological symp-tom increases.

Key words: intelligence, psychological symp-tom
