Humans vary greatly in a lot of things; intelligence is no exception. Differences in intelligence can mean major variations in quality of life. Not only can intelligence, often summarized by IQ scores, predict academic success, job income, and marriage stability, but it can also be used to determine life length (Kosslyn & Rosenberg, 2006). Research shows that every point increase in IQ can result in an increase of up to $616 in income each year (Zarorsky, 2007). Intelligence can predict a lot in a person's life, so it is important to understand intelligence and how it relates to structures in the brain.
