Charles concluded (p. 36 COGNITIVE PROCESSES IN MATURITY AND OLD AGE 65) that the difference in scores was probably greater than would be expected on the basis of the two different types of tests. He did not believe that the results indicated changes in native intelligence, but rather that they indicated changes in the relative measureability of the subjects.
