  1. I don't want to brag, but my intelligence is fine.))both at work and at school they are praised. Yes, and I remember any information and grasp it easily. So I can share the main secrets))Reading literature, intellectual games, healthy food, air, sleep and supplements are the most important things, in my opinion. From supplements, by the way, I take glycine forte, eleutherococcus and turmeric. Probably, it is thanks to this that it is possible to keep yourself in good “mental” shape)

    1. Read more �

    The more complex and unusual the books, the better. Complex constructions, long, detailed sentences, rare words, abstruse articles from our magazine and especially poems – a real “Rastishka” for your brain.

    2. Drum on the table

    Even better, make it a point to accompany the music you hear: on your knee, on the table top, or on a freshly bought tom – tom-it doesn't matter. Use your hands or chopsticks. Neuroscientist Anirudh Patel from San Diego believes that the sense of rhythm plays an important role in learning. After all, it is responsible for the basal ganglia-the lobes of the brain involved in motor functions.

    3. Listen to classical music

    Especially Mozart. In 1995, psychologist Frances Rauscher tricked thirty rats into entering her room. For two months, a Sonata for two Pianos in C major was periodically played there. After the experiment, it turned out that the animals not only danced better, but also ran through the maze faster and with fewer mistakes than the other group of rats who lived in silence for these two months.

    4. Train your memory �

    5. Have some coffee �

    Caffeine stimulates the release of the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine, which help you stay toned and focused longer. It is important not to overdo it: from a very large dose of caffeine, you will get overexcited and will not be able to think rationally. Caffeine in doses of more than 300 mg (four cups of natural coffee) per day will give you a state of anxiety, headache, tremor, arrhythmia.

    6. Albert Einstein

    Theoretical physicist, Nobel Prize winner:�

    “Intellectual growth should begin at birth and end only with death. Knowing where to find information and how to use it is the secret to success. A mind that has once expanded its boundaries will never return to its former limits. Outstanding personalities are formed not through beautiful speeches, but by their own work and its results.”

    9. Develop your numerical sense �

    Yes, yes, you already have one. Take a handful of change out of your pocket, take a quick look at it, and try to count the total amount from memory. Veronique Izgard, a cognitive psychologist at Harvard, found that ancient brain structures that are about a quasi-million years old (is there such a number? We have a bad time with this), but they can develop throughout life. To check how well your HH is developed at the moment, take a short test or a large-scale test, the results of which will even be preserved in the annals of an American university and help move science forward. Well, then-develop HH. The easiest way is to pack things in a bag. When you figure out how best to cram them in, your brain solves the most difficult problems and trains.

    10. Feed your brain right! �

    Especially if you still can't fully tell a single poem from the school curriculum, and Facebook reminds you of the birthdays of your friends.■�Walnuts. Almost the main food for the polymath! They even look like brains. Five nuts a day – and you will be provided with lecithin, which improves brain function and activates memory. Nuts are also useful if you suddenly live in conditions of high radiation.■️Fish. Laconic and cold, it is rich in iodine, and its meat contains omega-3 fatty acids, which provide a rapid flow of energy necessary for transmitting impulses in brain cells. They also regulate the level of cholesterol in the blood and improve the functioning of blood vessels. If you eat at least 100 grams of fish a day, your reaction rate will increase and you will reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.■️Pumpkin seeds. Pour half a glass in your jacket pocket and improve your memory and make your brain think faster during office scandals. All thanks to zinc.■️Spinach. Add it to your morning omelette two to three times a week. The lutein found in spinach will protect brain cells from premature aging.■�Sage. Researchers at Johns Hopkins University found that sage suppresses the action of amino acids responsible for memory impairment. Now they drink tea with sage every day and remember everything about everyone.

    Writer, master of Aikido, holder of the 10th dan, founder of the Ki-Aikido style Society ” Reading is the cornerstone of intelligence. Fill your free time by reading all kinds of books. Read novels, nonfiction, and biographies. First, quickly review the book to get a general idea of it. If you think this makes sense, read it again. As a result, your brain's ability to adapt to different circumstances and organize a wide variety of data will increase.”

    15. Konstantin Sheremetyev

    Researcher, author of the project “Intelligence” (http://www.sheremetev.info), author of the books “The Perfect Brain: How to Control the subconscious Mind” and “How to become smarter”:

    “Some people think that if they were good at solving math problems at school or something like that, then they are smart and will remain so forever. This is utter nonsense. If you build up your muscles at the age of 18 and then lie down on the couch and forget about them, they will atrophy very soon. And the same thing happens with brain efficiency.”TO THE ANSWER!

    Konstantin Sheremetyev cleverly answers our silly questions.

    Who can be considered smart?�

    A person who uses their brain to solve everyday tasks. The main mental activity takes place in the subconscious. They don't teach you how to handle it in school, so most people's brains are idle. It doesn't help them in any way in life. And the main purpose of intelligence is to ensure survival. Therefore, to evaluate the mind of a person, remember the rule: the result of the work of the intellect is a change in the material world.Survival? Then who is smarter-an office worker or a hunter in the wild?

    Oddly enough, the brain does not distinguish between these types of activities. Both need to explore their surroundings and learn how to act effectively in a given environment.How many minutes or hours a day should you devote to brain training?�

    The brain works around the clock. The only question is what kind of load you give him. If you critically look at life, look for what you want to do, realize yourself, then the brain starts working to its fullest. If there is no mental load, it atrophies and is only capable of thinking according to a template.You developed an emergency response program for astronauts.

    Andrea Machelli, a neuroscientist at the University of London, shows that people who know several foreign languages have an easier time switching between different mental tasks.�

    17. Install a smart app for yourself �

    Feeling an unpleasant throb in our too-fast-growing brains, we stared at our mobile phone screens, hoping to find salvation in some mind-numbing game. But what is it? And on mobile devices, do not take a step away from the dominance of educational programs!Memory simulator. Consistently memorize the clicks of multi-colored buttons and repeat them. In fact, this is still the same “N back” task, disguised as a game.�

    18. Don't waste your time �

    If you have a free minute at work and you want to see a couple of meters of funny pictures, it's better to open Wikipedia and read a “random” article.

    19. Go for a walk �

    It is enough to walk around the house for half an hour three times a week in order to concentrate your attention, learn and think abstractly 15% better.�

    20. Give your brain a break �

    No matter how busy you are, in the process of mental activity, you should definitely rest every hour and a half. For example, do simple physical exercises or just walk down the hall and have a cup of coffee. Consider it a necessity. So the analytical centers of the brain better digest the accumulated information and no-no yes and come to some unexpected conclusion.

    21. Boost your brain �

    If you ignored all our advice, and tomorrow the final of the championship ” What? Where? When?” league of classmates, there is another way to shake the fat on the brain gyrus.■ Neurometabolic stimulants, also known as nootropics, which have an activating effect on memory and mental activity, will help to urgently increase IQ. Note: completely legal. Search words in the pharmacy are: phenotropil, allertek, deprenil. You can also try phenibut, but it, unlike previous drugs, is drunk in a course of 2-3 weeks, a single use will not give the proper result. And it should be like this: no desire to give up everything and go to bed, increased reaction speed, slight irritability and a feeling that you are smarter than everyone around you. There is, however, a small problem. “The effect of nootropics on the brain has not yet been fully studied,” says Konstantin Anokhin, head of the Laboratory of Memory Neurobiology at the Institute of Normal Physiology of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences. Don't confuse nootropics with dietary supplements. These will also make you smarter for a while, but they also work differently and have a weaker effect. These are, for example, ginkgo biloba, guarana, eleutherococcus and ginseng root.

    22. Play Tetris �

    A study by American scientists has shown that this classic puzzle can have a positive impact on the development of the human brain. Tests have confirmed that regular practice of playing Tetris can increase the amount of gray matter in the player's brain and improve their thinking abilities. The brains of people who played this puzzle for half an hour a day for three months during the experiment underwent changes in areas related to movement, critical thinking, reasoning, language and information processing.

    “Iron rushes out of use, stagnant water rots or freezes in the cold, and the human mind languishes.”

    24. Anatoly Wasserman

    Journalist, political consultant:

    “Read and watch more, try to find connections and analogies between different knowledge-and pretty soon you will feel what other gaps should be filled in order to understand more. Without intelligence, everything else is just useless. Being smart is not only fashionable, but also very pleasant. In my experience, it is better to remember what interests you. Be inquisitive – and without much effort, remember everything that turns out to be interesting. But in order to preserve your memory, you need to work actively and have diverse interests. Then much will be remembered, and memory will be a reliable support.”

    25. Get a good night's sleep �

    It is during sleep that the brain processes the information collected during the day and forms memories. According to researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, an adult usually gets 6 to 8 hours of sleep.

    26. Read in new ways �

    Of course, you've already skimmed through this tip and moved on to the next one. Try going back and doing this.■ Take a pencil and draw it under the line, read the text. The eye, catching the movement, will run after the pointer, while reading everything that you have slipped it. Speed up the pencil movement every time – this way your eyes will get used to the increased load, your reading speed will increase, and you will be able to absorb information faster.■ 80% of people mentally pronounce words when reading. You acquired this bad habit while learning to read: you spelled out the text, then spelled it out in syllables, then put them into words. But this is not necessary for understanding. To combat your inner voice, learn to read the text while simultaneously counting to thirty or humming (you can do it without words) a song. You won't understand the content of the text for a week or two, but gradually everything will come back to normal. If you believe physiologists, a person who sees something exciting, the pupils reflexively dilate. When you get to an interesting place in the text, the same thing happens: the pupil expands, more light enters the eye, which means that it can capture more information. The only problem is how to make yourself believe that the investigative report in front of you is as interesting as an interview with a cover girl. From a neurophysiological point of view, interest occurs when the brain compares new information with existing information in memory. So just assume what exactly might be written in the text. The brain will be forced to compare information with real ones and willy-nilly show interest.

    27. Start an unusual hobby �

    28. Alan Weiss

    President of the NCH Healthcare Union:�

    “When you are completely immersed in the world of the game, your brain focuses on solving actual problems. He is looking for unusual solutions and ways out of situations that are unusual in everyday life. Later, these same ideas can be useful to you in real life, at work, or when communicating.”

    29. Try new ways to get information �

    30. Stop watching TV �

    31. Meditation

    If you want to increase your own IQ, be sure to practice meditation. According to the researchers, meditation slows down brain activity and thus gives it a “break”, which has a positive effect on the further work of our “gray matter”. As a result, the mind becomes more plastic, logical and imaginative thinking works better. Studies show that this practice increases IQ by 23%.

    And Eastern sages consider meditation to be the best way to activate the brain. According to them, practicing meditation for just 20 minutes a day can protect yourself from stress, organize your thoughts, clear your mind and stimulate creativity. By the way, one of the most gifted people in the world, Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, trained his brain during his lifetime by doing Zen meditation.

    As you can see, our brain can and should be trained. Getting rid of bad habits and using the useful tips given in this article, you will not only increase your IQ, but also find an interesting and exciting activity for yourself!

    32. Practice hard science

    Even if you are not a mathematician or a nuclear physicist by profession, but you are a humanist by vocation, take up the exact sciences to improve your intelligence. If you are no longer at the age to enter the mathematics department, and are quite happy with your own profession, no one bothers you to take up exact sciences as an amateur.

    To do this, you can solve math problems at home or enroll in a specialized circle. Such a useful habit will not only increase your mental abilities, but also allow you to easily perform complex calculations in your mind, which means that cunning sellers will certainly not be able to deceive you.

    33. Eat a little at a time

    Eat a little bit several times a day. This technique allows you to keep blood flowing to your brain. If you eat a large amount of food 1-2 times a day, digesting food in a full stomach takes up a lot of the body's resources, taking them away from the brain.

    1. Solve IQ tests over and over again.

    2. Run around

    Researchers at the Institute of Neurology and Psychology, located in Tsvetia, claim that a healthy and well-functioning cardiovascular system can increase the level of intelligence by as much as 50% (although it seems to me that the opposite process is more likely – the less health, the lower the intelligence). “Intensive cardio training definitely has a positive effect on a person's cognitive abilities,” says Maria Aberg, who led the research. And by the way, for those who still doubt, I remind you that it's already spring outside the window and you will soon be able to run in any park you like.

  2. The best way to do this is to analyze and correct your own ideas about the world. Each of us has a lot of stupid ideas about the world that are “based” on absolute nonsense (somewhere I heard something, somewhere I read something, one friend said ,” it's accepted”, etc.). You should question such opinions, especially if they do not allow you to reliably predict future events. You should ask yourself questions �”Why do I think so? Why do I think this is true?” and try to answer them. But the problem is that we often do not distinguish our ideas about reality from reality itself, and it does not even occur to us to doubt what we believe. Remember: your ideas about reality are not reality, and any words about any things are not the things themselves.
