(For those unfamiliar with the jargon, g is commonly used by psychologists and geneticists to stand for general factor of cognitive ability and is often used as a synonym for. In many instances, they make headlines in the mainstream media. 19 Theres also no reason to think social mobility will grind to a halt if the correlation between IQ and socio-economic status ever approaches 100 per cent, even allowing for assortative mating.
