Students may do better than their parents when asked to take an intelligence test for a few reasons. Firstly, children get accustomed to taking tests from a young age because of the structure of our education system. On the other hand, our parents may not have had the same exposure to test taking as us. As a result, if parents were required to take a test, it may increase their stress level and ultimately affect their performance. Secondly, there may be a language barrier for our parents or they may not be as fluent as their children. Lastly, having had access to the Internet growing up, we have always had access to a wealth of information. In comparison to our parents who did not have access to the same technology, we may have more knowledge in certain areas because of our early exposure to the Internet. The impact it has on the nature-nurture debate is that if nature was solely responsible for our intelligence than we would not do better. Our environment (nurture) has a big impact on our learning and abilities.
