comment Does the ability to manipulate your environment affect the type of intelligence?
I think you might be on to something, drak. Beings with more "power" to manipulate their environment, could perhaps have a greater logical, cause-effect intelligence, since they have more experience in producing causes and observing effects. A squid with limited ability to "cause" things will not have such a great understanding of cause-effect relationships.

comment Does an exceptional working memory inhibit intelligence?
@nycynik, thanks for your answer. Your reference unfortunately merely states that your brain can adapt to working memory training. It doesn't say whether such adaptations could inhibit problem solving and language abilities.

comment Does an exceptional working memory inhibit intelligence?
@Ana, the presence of working memory on an IQ test doesn't mean that working memory contributes to language and problem solving abilities (i.e. the higher order thinking skills). Chimps are terrible compared to humans at such things, yet chimps are superior on the working memory task.

comment Best practice to handle double negatives when using the expectancy-value model?
You could simply "shift" the scale of one of the variables. Instead of going from -3 to 3, go from 0 to 7. I would recommend converting the bi-polar "expectancy" variable to a percentage.
