10 Ways to Increase Your Intelligence & Improve Your Brain Power. Here are 10 simple ways you can increase your brain power and improve your intelligence!
The amazing fact about the brain is that no matter how smart or how old you are, you can always increase your intelligence. First, what exactly is intelligence? Intelligence can be defined as the capacity for learning, reasoning, and understanding. It can also be defined as the aptitude one has in grasping truths, facts, and meanings. Or, it can be summed up as the entire faculty of understanding.
IQ (Intelligence Quotient) is a measure developed from a series of standardized test to measure and compare intelligence among humans. Having a high IQ doesn’t really mean you’re going to be successful in life, but it certainly can help make certain aspects of life easier – especially when it comes to scholastic activities. Although it was once thought that IQ remained static throughout a person’s adulthood, there is some evidence that people can increase their intelligence quotient.
Activities that are healthy for your brain are generally related to helping boost IQ. There are links between IQ scores and: social status, parenting, mortality, and morbidity. Additionally, IQ scores can sometimes predict: job performance, educational advancement, income, whether you commit a crime, and special needs. As a human population, IQ has been rising at an average rate of three points per decade since the 1930’s – this is called “The Flynn effect.”
