In society, people base their life on intelligence. They do everything possible to get ahead in life. To get ahead, they cheat each other, back stab, and commit many sinful acts. Also, they educate themselves so they are capable of doing whatever is required of them. Society is trying to always make themselves smarter. Are they trying to change something that they have no control over though? Intelligence is something that everybody has, but is something that is developed over time. The development of intelligence has many items that play a factor. For instance, environment and heredity both play a role in developing a person's I.Q. “Each of us are born with intelligence” (Lawler 15). With one’s intelligence, one finds outside issues exist in playing a role in their I.Q. For instance, the moment a baby is born factors are affecting that child’s I.Q. The baby does not have control over these factors, but they still take an affect. The factors can range from the baby’s birth weight to the order in which the child was born. Loehlin, Lindzey, and Spuhler state that a child with “low-birth weight tend to have a lower I.Q.”(212). This is true because it is believed that if the child’s birth weight is low then the child must be slower at developing. Since a child is slow at developing, he will therefore have a lower I.Q. On the other end, “If you come from a large family, your I.Q. may go hand in hand with the position you were born. If you are the youngest your intelligence tends to be higher than the first born”(Pinter 530). After the issues that one can’t control take effect, one needs to concentrate on his parental role in developing a child’s intelligence. “Parental education has no effect on a child until the ages of 2-5” (Lewis 107). When a child reaches this age point, the parents play a large role in the development of his intel...
