A new University of Melbourne study has found that the only way to predict whether a person will be a good person or a bad person is to measure their intelligence.
The study, by researchers from the University of New South Wales and the University to the Arts, found that a person’s IQ is a single measure of how well they can think, write, reason and interact with others.
The research was published in the journal Psychological Science.
However, the researchers also found that people with a higher IQ also tend to be more socially and culturally sensitive.
Professor Ian Hickey from the Department of Psychology at the University’s Faculty of Arts and Science said the study was a ‘big step forward’ in terms of identifying factors that predict intelligence.
“It’s a very interesting study because it really shows that intelligence is only a single indicator of how you think and you’re only going to be able to tell you this by studying people with the same IQ,” he said.
“You can’t tell a person whether they are good or bad simply by looking at their IQ score.”
Prof Hickey said there were two key findings of the study.
The first was that people who scored higher on IQ also tended to be socially and emotionally sensitive.
“The second finding is that the higher your intelligence is, the more socially sensitive you are,” he explained.
ProfHickey said the research would be important for other researchers to investigate. “
People who have higher intelligence scores tend to also be more social, which means they are more likely to be open to people’s opinions.”
ProfHickey said the research would be important for other researchers to investigate.
“This research is very promising and shows that we need to continue to investigate these factors in order to find out whether or not they have any impact on the way people can be successful as a society,” he told the ABC.
“I would encourage people who have an IQ of around 150 to take it on, and try to take some of these questions out of the equation and try and think about the ways in which they might benefit from having an IQ above 150.”
Professor Hickey’s research also looked at a different type of intelligence called ‘intellectual capacity’, which was determined by how well people could perform cognitive tasks.
This ability is usually measured using IQ tests, and was used in the original book IQ: the science behind it.
The new research found that intelligence was largely determined by two different types of cognitive abilities.
The researchers found that there were some differences between how people performed cognitive tasks in the general population, as well as in university students.
“What we found was that students who scored in the top quartile of intellectual capacity tended to do better academically and socially,” Professor Hickys said.
The second finding from the research was that social sensitivity was linked to social IQ.
Social sensitivity is defined as a person having a high degree of sensitivity to social situations and social cues.
The social sensitivity of someone was measured using the Social Sensitivity Scale (SSS), a test that measures the person’s ability to engage socially with others, and assess the person in a social context.
Prof Hicky said he was encouraged by the new research.
“There is a real need for further research into social sensitivity,” he added.
“Social sensitivity is a pretty significant predictor of intelligence and the ability to function in a wide range of social situations, so it’s important to understand more about the social and emotional capabilities of people in order for us to better understand the role they play in society.”

The University of Queensland is also conducting an IQ study.
It will be the first to test whether IQ is an important predictor of whether or when you’ll be successful in life.
“IQ is not a good predictor of what a person is going to do in the future, so we need more studies to see if it does or not,” Professor Ian said.
ProfHicky said it was important for people to remember that the study looked at how people were able to learn new things.
“So, if you can read, write and think, you can be a really good person,” he stressed.
“In this study we looked at whether or how you can use other people’s knowledge to help you learn.” “
