General knowledge (GK) has been defined in differential psychology as 'culturally valued knowledge communicated by a range of non-specialist media'  This definition excludes highly specialized learning that can only be obtained with extensive training, as well as 'ephemera', that is, information confined to a single medium, such as television sitcoms. General knowledge therefore encompasses a wide range of knowledge domains. For example, a study by Lynn, Irwing, & Cammock (2001) identified 18 domains of knowledge that met the definition provided above: History of Science, Politics, Sport, History, Classical Music, Art, Literature, General Science, Geography, Cookery, Medicine, Games, Discovery and Exploration, Biology, Film, Fashion, Finance, and Popular Music. The researchers acknowledged that other domains of general knowledge may exist. Studies using factor analysis have found that all specific domains of knowledge tested were positively intercorrelated and were substantially related to a higher order general factor. General knowledge therefore seems to be supported by long-term semantic memory ability.
