The more intelligent the student, the less likely he was to hold Militaristic, Anti-Communistic, or Super Patriotic attitudes, and the more likely he was to have a strong Belief in the Bill of Rights.
A fifth ideological dimension, Economic Liberalism, was found to be negatively correlated with intelligence: the more intelligent student was more likely to be an economic conservative. Intelligence was negatively correlated with Authoritarianism: the more intelligent student was less likely to manifest authoritarian predispositions. Intelligence was significantly correlated with political information and cognition: the higher a student's intelligence, the more sophisticated as his level of political cognition and political information. All three information variables, Knowledge of Political Facts, Understanding of the Political System, and Understanding of Partisan Politics were significantly positively correlated with intelligence. Sense of Relevance of Government and Sense of Citizen Duty were also significantly positively correlated with intelligence.
