Examined the effects of general fluid intelligence on item response times for correct and false responses in computerized adaptive testing. After performing the CFT3 intelligence test, 80 individuals (aged 17-44 yrs) completed perceptual and cognitive discrimination tasks. Results show that response times were related neither to the proficiency dimension reflected by the task nor to the individual level of fluid intelligence. Furthermore, the false > correct-phenomenon as well as substantial positive correlations between item response times for false and correct responses were shown to be independent of intelligence levels.
