I think these have been dead ends, of almost no scientific value. Having written about this at inordinate length, I won't repeat myself here. I will however permit myself to re-iterate that while IQ may be uniquely obnoxious in the uses to which it is put, the same methodological flaws undermine many other parts of psychology, and indeed other areas of social science. (Glymour more or less speaks for me on this point.)
