Two GUARANTEED Ways To Profoundly Increase Your Intelligence Improve Your Intelligence. By Win Wenger Part One - Introduction Part Two - Can and Should Intelligence Be Increased?

Part Three - Awareness and Attention-Span: A Breathtaking Discovery Part Four - Image-Streaming I. Introduction 1. The other procedure-- 2. At this time we do not know whether the gains from following both procedures together would be merely additive, or whether they will be positively synergistic. Of course we realize that the dollar-value refund on this booklet means little to you compared with the value of your time, effort and attention in pursuing either of these procedures. (Introduction, cont.) attention will be quickly repaid many times over and then go on as a "dividend income" for the rest of your life. Quibbles and Qualifiers: A-ha, you knew there must be a catch to this! Of course, to qualify for refund you would need to demonstrate by some well-recognized standardized test that there was no gain resulting comparable to those cited.

A. B. C. Go to Part Two. How Do You Raise a Prodigy? 5 Surprising Habits of Super-Creatives. I am a hopeless sucker for stories about the daily habits of geniuses — you know, the ones that reveal Hemingway used only knife-sharpened, German-made #2 pencils, or that Balzac sucked down 50 cups of coffee a day. I love these stories partly for the voyeuristic buzz, and partly because they sometimes contain useful tips. I just found the mother lode: Daily Rituals, a new book by Mason Currey, which details the habits of 161 notable scientists, playwrights, philosophers, and writers. (Here’s a sample, from Currey’s blog.) It’s a useful read, because it changes the way we think about creative types — specifically about how they organize their days.

We’re usually taught that creative geniuses live spontaneous, eccentric, anything-goes lives — you know, lots of turmoil, cigarettes, and questionable hats. But when you look closer, you find a different reality. Rule #1: Build a simple regimen, and stick to it obsessively. Rule #2: Embrace weird little rituals. Rule #6: Exercise. Rate This.

A Few Shortcuts Are All You Need I am a proud owner of a four-volume work, "The World of Mathematics", Simon & Schuster, 1956. Volume I features a chapter on calculating prodigies; one was a six-year-old boy with amazing abilities. According to the text, "When asked for the square of 4,395, he hesitated, but on the question being repeated he gave the correct answer, namely 19,395,025.

" I decided to tackle that problem myself, coming up with a solution of 19,316,025 in approximately one minute, then was highly disappointed to see that my number did not match the one in the text. This does not mean that someone should immediately sign me up for the carnival circuit or other exposition; the problem isn't that difficult. To that end, I offer a few practical gimmicks and shortcuts — namely, the stuff that I use myself. Note: problems are denoted as [problem].

If you are sufficiently aged, then in grade school you learned your "times tables", probably up to . Everyone knows the and : 5 = 10/2. Mental Gym: Mental Division: Decimal Accuracy. Introduction While there are many mental math sites and videos freely available on the internet, very few seem to focus on division. That's likely because division rarely comes out nice and neat, like addition, subtraction, and multiplication do. You have to deal with “leftovers” in the forms of remainders, fractions, or decimals.

Fractions are often seen as the most human-friendly way of expressing left-over numbers. This tutorial will focus solely on division problems whose results are less than 1. Fortunately, there are numerous patterns of which we can take advantage, that will help make the task much easier than many people would suspect. Fractions to Memorize When dealing with smaller divisors, such as those from 2 to 11, it's quite useful to have the decimal equivalents of all such problems less than 1 memorized. You probably already know all the answers for dividing by 2 through 4 already: 1/3=.333... Dividing by 5 is very easy. All you have to know is two more 6ths: New Patterns. How to Develop a Photographic Memory.

How to develop eidetic memory. How to develop eidetic memory As per the myths of Ancient Greece there were nine muses who endowed the mortal with the spirit of creation.

It is known that many artists and draughtsman have ability to memorize the pictures and to reproduce them from memory.

The ancient oriental scientists ascertained that all people could be divided into four types - artists and thinkers.
