.030 (p = .862)

.140 (p = .424)

Verbalization

.345 (p = .042)*

.160 (p = .358)

 The table shows the product moment correlation coefficients between verbalization/ visualization and intelligence, statistical significance is given in brackets. No significant correlations between the selfreported use of verbalization or visualization in solving arithmetic word problems and numerical or figural intelligence were observed (n = 36). Moreover, no significant correlation between the selfreported use of visualization in solving arithmetic word problems and verbal intelligence was observed (n = 36), but a significant negative correlation between the selfreported use of verbalization in solving arithmetic word problems and verbal intelligence was observed (n = 36). However, it should be mentioned that this correlation is not significant any more after Bonferroni correction. (We used a Bonferroni correction for the number of content areas of intelligence for each modality. Thus, the critical p value was .017 (.05 / 3)).
