Raven's Advanced Progressive Matrices were significantly correlated with Digit Span Sequencing (r(91) = .22, p = .03; t(91) = 2.15, p = .03), Trail Making Test (r(91) = -.30, p < .003; t(91) = -3.0, p = .003), and Design Fluency Test (r(91) = .39, p < .01; t(91) = 4.04, p < .001), but not with Cognitive Failures Questionnaire or Tower Test.
Cognitive Failures Questionnaire was not correlated with fluid intelligence (r(91) = -.08, p = .45; t(91) = -0.76, p = .45) or any other measure.
The Cognitive Failures Questionnaire (Broadbent et al., 1982)
The Cognitive Failures Questionnaire has high internal validity (alpha=0.91) and is stable over long periods of time, with a test-retest reliability rate of .82.

Some normative and psychometric data for the Geriatric Depression Scale and the Cognitive Failures Questionnaire
from a sample of healthy elderly.
Unfortunately, the single self-reported cognitive ability item is not validated unlike other self-reported instruments, such as the Cognitive Failures Questionnaire
(Broadbent et al., 1982).

(1982) found that the Cognitive Failures Questionnaire
correlated quite well with tests of 'slips of action' and 'absent-mindedness', as well as with Herrmann and Neisser's (1978) Inventory of Memory Experiences.
One such scale that has been widely used to examine the minor slips and errors of everyday life is the Cognitive Failures Questionnaire
(CFQ; Broadbent, Cooper, Fitzgerald, & Parkes, 1982) This measure has been employed to evaluate changes in aging (e.g., Kramer, Humphrey, Larish, Logan, & Strayer, 1994) and to examine the effects of stress and anxiety on cognitive errors (e.g., Houston, 1989; Mahoney, Dalby, & King, 1998; Mathews & Wells, 1989; Mathews, Coyle, & Craig, 1990).
The present study examined several issues related to interpretation and use of the Cognitive Failures Questionnaire
, including dimensionality, relationships with actual mishaps, and the relationship to handedness.
