Yes and no. Investment in early education along with dedicated guidance leads to greater testing outcomes. My example is Geoffrey Canada’s work in the NYC school system from top to bottom.

Hey Mike! Thanks for commenting. It sounds like you’re saying systems can buy intelligence, defined as better test outcomes.
Can individuals purchase intelligence?

It really depends our definition of intelligence. If we choose to define it (as it often has been) as relatively static and unchanging, then no… but for purposes of assessment and testing… absolutely. I would argue that some forms of intelligence, like emotional intelligence, are more akin to terms like “wisdom” – the scars of life teach us great lessons of love and humility.
