To add to Arnon's answer, modality-specific working memory capacity (WMC) does correlate within individuals, so in some cases, you could certainly predict one from the other. As long as dumb prediction is all you're interested in, why not? The problem with making that prediction is that it's very difficult to interpret what it means in causal or practical ...


How working memory breaks down, or even whether it is a valid construct at all, is still somewhat controversial. The evidence for domain-specific modalities is largely based on the (lack of otherwise expected) interference between them. Another line of evidence that could be used to validate this model is checking the correlations between them: A high ...
