Vocabulary Test with Synonyms

The mutualism model of intelligence1, suggests that different cognitive abilities and competencies interact with each other in order to facilitate reasoning and in cognitive development across the life span2.

Research supports the notion that individuals with higher scores in vocabulary tend to show greater gains in matrix reasoning and vice versa3, which means that a good vocabulary can be a good indicator and precursor of other domains of cognition, namely memory and reasoning speed4.
