The new Cattell-Horn-Carroll (CHC) periodic table of cognitive elements: Build your own

The latest and greatest CHC periodic table of cognitive elements is now available!

I've been meaning to make this post for a long time.  Below are the front and back images of my official CHC periodic table of cognitive elements.  This revision reflects Dr. Joel Schneider and my CHC theory update chapter to be published this fall (I believe next month) in the latest CIA (contemporary intellectual assessment) book.

Some of you may be familiar with the fact that, for the prior version, I had the table professionally printed (one sheet...both sides used) and laminated.  I distributed these during some of my presentations and at conferences.  The response was always positive.  My original plan was to have a new batch professionally printed and laminated and to make them available for a nominal fee via PayPal.  However, I was stalled by the details of having to deal with different state sales taxes, accepting payments, packaging, and mailing.  Instead, I am now providing interested people with the actual JPEG images (click here to download).  You can print your own copy and laminate if you want.  Build your own CHC periodic table of cognitive elements!

A PDF copy of the latest definitions, abstracted from our chapter, can be found here.

Enjoy.
