The most beautiful minds?: Intelligence and economic decision-making

Are smart people better at making optimal financial decisions? The economic literature shows some striking conflicting views with respect to this question but little hard empirical data. On one hand, more intelligent people are believed to be better at reading facial trustworthiness signals in economic interactions, for example, whereas monkeys and children are said to make more optimal decisions than educated adults in other contexts. In this talk I’ll present an overview of our studies that specifically examine the role of individual differences in intelligence on people’s economic decision-making. The studies focus on classic economic games such as the Ultimatum and Trust Game. I’ll show how contrary to popular belief, intelligence is not involved in accurate reading of facial trustworthiness signals in the Trust Game but does help to make more money in the Ultimatum Game. I’ll sketch a unifying framework that is grounded in dual process theories of cognition to make sense of these somewhat counterintuitive findings.
