Intellectual confidence is independent from actual intelligence. For example, children, who achieved the best marks in school, tended to rate their own abilities highly. For them intelligence is not the only predictor of scholastic achievement, and that intellectual confidence does a good a job of predicting grades as well.
The intellectual confidence is sprouted due to intelligence and environment. There has been a very, very big lobby within educational psychology against the notion of IQ. Part of this lobby has been based on the idea that self-perceptions matter more than actual ability.
Environmental factors-such as the influence of parents, teachers and friends-explain why some students think more of their abilities than others. Only about half of differences in children's self-perceived abilities can be explained by environment, and the other half seems to be genetic. For comparison, genes can explain about 80 per cent of the differences in height.
