Do you think that the fact that university tends to be much more the default choice for those deemed "intelligent" in the States, as opposed to over here, has an effect on the data? From what I've heard apprenticeships certainly are not as big over there as over here.

I do think that each individual's brain is "wired" in a certain way, it would be interesting to create a small sample representative of the overall survey population and invite them for detailed testing. I think areas such as spatial reasoning, processing speed, memory etc. could be considered and compared with university of flight training test scores.
