Psychometrical tests such as Wechsler’s intelligence test were applied. While the poor children’s average Intelligence Quotient was 92, the non-poor ones were 100. Moreover, forty percent of the poor ones did not reach an average of 80. The study showed that pertaining to poor homes is associated to the cognitive mechanism’s deficiency which depends on the brain’s frontal region. This is what Sebastian Lipina from the Cemic’s Applied Neuro-biological Unit declared. (Lipina, S. 2004).

However, the last word has not been said because it is known that people with a high Intelligence Quotient can be found in all the standards of living that are high, medium, or low.
