Psychologists have continued the pursuit for an understanding of intelligence for more than a century. More recently this pursuit has included the relations between personality and intelligence. The present study was designed to investigate the relations between typical cognitive endeavours, methods of study, and specific factors of intelligence. Results indicated that typical level of intellectual engagement is positively correlated with need for cognition, deep and strategic approaches to studying, and verbal ability. Results of a hierarchical regression indicated that although the deep approach to studying was a significant predictor of verbal ability, age was the best predictor of verbal ability. The implications of the study’s findings are discussed.
