Abstract

Goff and Ackerman's (1992) Typical Intellectual Engagement scale and the Need for Cognition scale (Cacioppo, Petty, & Kao, 1984) correlated with each other near the limits of their reliabilities, and were quite interchangeable in convergent-discriminant relations with other variables. We argue that these two scales may be measuring essentially the same personality characteristics that are specifically related to intelligence.
