Objective: To analyze the relationship, by comparison and correlation, between executive function (EF) and intellectual capacity (IC) in clever children (CC) and Average Intelligence Quotient children (AIQC), aged 7 to 11 years, and living in Medellín - Colombia. Patients and Methods: a non-randomized sample of 62 children was selected. The sample was constituted by two independent groups, according the IC. EF tasks were administered to both groups. Results: CC had statistically significant higher performance on phonological verbal fluency test (PVFT) (p < 0,05), with a modest effect size (0,65). A statistically significant, but low (r = 0,267, p = 0,03), correlation between PVF and verbal IQ was found. Conclusion: EF appeared as a non IQ-related ability.
