# Statistics of SloBrain

## Warning

The below statistics are based on self-reported scores, and therefore of limited value. Since it concerns a performance test, people may report flattering results, and even if proof is shown, they may have done many attempts and only shown the best. About the same is true for self-reported scores on I.Q. tests, which often have little relation to one's true intelligence level. Also, the correlations in this report are in nearly all cases not significant due to too low numbers of pairs. This is not mentioned explicitly in each case, so keep it in mind.

And, it must be pointed out that reaction time normally increases with age in adults, possibly through the loss of myelination and resulting decrease of nerve conduction velocity. Other than a non-significant negative correlation with birth year, there is not by far enough information in these statistics to study or reveal any development with age.

## Correlation between the two SloBrain statistics

rmean reaction time × reaction time standard deviation = .74 (n = 36)

So, persons with shorter reaction times are significantly more consistent, have their reaction times closer together.

Ranking in above table is based on the unrounded correlations. All available data is present in this table, no tests are left out except for those with less than 4 score pairs. All known pairs are used, including possible floor/ceiling scores or outliers.

Ranking in above table is based on the unrounded correlations. All available data is present in this table, no tests are left out except for those with less than 4 score pairs. All known pairs are used, including possible floor/ceiling scores or outliers.

Please be aware that correlations with these external tests are in most cases affected (depressed, typically) by one or more of the following: (1) Little overlap with the object test because of the much lower ceilings and inherent ceiling effects of the tests used in regular psychology; (2) Candidates reporting scores selectively, for instance only the higher ones while withholding lower ones; (3) Candidates reporting, or having been reported by psychometricians, incorrect scores.

## Estimated loadings of SloBrain - Mean reaction time on particular item types

These are estimated g factor loadings, but against homogeneous tests (containing only particular item types) as opposed to non-compound heterogeneous tests. Although tending to surprise the lay person, it is not uncommon for tests to have high loadings on item types they do not actually contain themselves. Such loadings reflect the empirical fact that most tests for mental abilities measure primarily g, regardless of their contents; that the major part of test score variance is caused by g, and only a minor part by factors germane to particular item types. It is of key importance to understand that this is a fact of nature, a natural phenomenon, and not something that was built into the tests by the test constructors.
