Canonical relations between intelligence and aggressiveness
Institute of Criminological and Sociological Research, Belgrade


Relation between results obtained from 25 tests for estimation of efficiency of perceptual, serial and parallel processor and 8 tests that estimate different modalities of aggressiveness, were analyzed under the biorthogonal model of canonical correlation analysis, on a sample of 647 male subjects, age between 19 to 27. The results show that there is significant, medium high (0,65), logically negative canonical correlation between cognitive efficiency and aggressiveness. Canonical factor derived from cognitive tests was similar to general cognitive factor because all cognitive tests had substantial correlation with it, whereby correlations of tests of serial processing were systematically higher than correlation of tests of parallel and particularly of perceptual processing. Canonic factor derived from tests of aggressiveness was not similar to invert scaled factor of aggressiveness of second order because tests of basic aggressiveness and impulsiveness that were otherwise dominant salient of general factor of aggressiveness, did not have significant correlation with canonical factor derived from tests of aggressiveness. According to that, it seams that inferior functioning of cognitive and particularly serial processor is connected only to those modalities of aggressiveness where there are also disorders of other conative regulators, especially systems for coordination and control of conative functions, but not with basic aggressiveness. That, basically biological characteristic of system for regulation and control of attack reaction, is not, according to all, in significant correlation with efficiency of cognitive processors.
