Studies reprinted in the latest, 7th volume of Scientific Research on Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme: Collected Papers demonstrate holistic development of intellectual abilities and higher levels of personality integration among those who learn the Transcendental Meditation technique, even though this development usually does not occur after adolescence.

For example, three studies of secondary students in Taiwan found that those who learned the Transcendental Meditation technique, in comparison to control students who practiced other procedures, showed improvement in a broad range of mental abilities, including improved creativity, improved practical intelligence, increased mental efficiency, and increased abstract intelligence.

A 10-year longitudinal study found that university students regularly practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique displayed a dramatic increase in self-development to high levels of personality integration, in contrast to control groups of students from three universities. Of the students practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique, 38% of the group scored at a very high level of self-development, in contrast to only 1% of the control groups.
