MARIN RUEDA, Fabián Javier  e  RIBEIRO DE CASTRO, Nelimar. DIVIDED ATTENTION AND INTELLIGENCE IN TRAFFIC CONTEXT. Cienc. Psicol. [online]. 2010, vol.4, n.1, pp.17-26. ISSN 1688-4221.

The scientific literature suggests a relationship between attention and intelligence constructs, being both studied in different contexts. In this study, we chose to investigate this relationship in the traffic context. Thus, the objective was to determine the relationship between divided attention- assessed by the Divided Attention Test (TEADI)-, and intelligence - measured by the non-verbal Intelligence Test - R-1-, in individuals intended to apply for a driver’s license. 116 inhabitants of the state of Bahia, Brazil, of both genders, and with an average age of 27, 78 years (SD=8, 21) participated in the research. The measures were administered in DETRAN-BA accredited clinics of psychological evaluation, collecting firstly the TEADI data, and secondly, those obtained by the R-1. Positive and significant correlations were found between both instruments, showing that as divided attention levels increased, so did intelligence. Moreover, the age groups established by the TEADI were differentiated in the R-1, indicating that the older participants had a poorer performance in intelligence. Finally, the categories of interpretation of the R-1 differentiated the participants with low levels of divided attention
