Increase in age, loss of intelligence

by Andrew Arnold
(Aleander, AR)

I think the possibility for this theory lies in the probability that we lose "capacity" for intelligence as we age, due to certain predispositions that we may acquire along our journey.


But what do I know... it's just a thought.
By the way... this site has tons of spelling errors and/or grammatical disagreements. For instance: " An IQ scoring of 140 to 145 definitely qualify you for this category." This should read: "An IQ scoring of 140 to 145 definitely 'qualifies' you for this category."

Sorry, it's a pet pieve!

Increase in age,
by: Anonymous

Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

Misspelling and IQ ScoreS
by: Saqib-Admin

Thank for accepting my corrections and offering a lot of encouragement. My native language is not English so my misspellings can't be taken as a criteria to measure my IQ level.

As for as learning English language is concerned, it is not difficult to learn. However, the students who start learning any language in the start of their academic career always perform better than those who start learning English for their career. And I started learning English much later, during my studies.

And what is my Profession?

I have been working with the Government of Punjab for last 16 years at different administrative, judicial and executive positions.

Increase in age, loss of intelligence?

Your English is no doubt better than my Punjabi. I appreciate corrections as well. Thesis is the correct speeling of "theses." Did you mean to say: "adapting" instead of "apoting" in the following phrase? You know English language is not only changing but also adopting to the diverse communities of the world.
I enjoy studying language; how difficult do you find the English language to learn compared to other languages?
I agree to a certain extent that misspellings do not equate to a lack of intelligence... but only if it's not your native tongue.
What is your profession?

Wrong Spellings do not Equate to Low Intelligence.
by: Admin

To Arnold,

I agree. Intelligence does not decrease with age but with certain beliefs. No doubt a time comes when our brain cells fail to retain anything but in most of the times we believe that intelligence decreases with age.


And my spelling and grammar mistakes...

I openly admit that English language is foreign to me. Most of the visitors know that I am from Pakistan and here we speak Urdu as out national tongue. My mother tongue is Punjabi.

I am thankful to all those who point out mistakes. I have corrected the spellings as you pointed out.

On the other hand there has been scholarly research into 'impact of internet use on English language'. Recently, one of my friends has submitted his M.Phil thesis on this subject. You know English language is not only changing but also adopting to the diverse communities of the world.

I am not justifying my mistakes but claiming indemnity for being a foreigner to the English language. I try my best to communicate as fairly as possible. If you can understand me then you may bear me with.
