"Improve IQ"



In the East, remains of the ancient physicians claim that you can improve IQ results by eating almonds. They believe, without any scientific or philosophical evidence that the almonds contain elements which motivate the brain cells to perform well.

And in the west...

...some think that salmon fish can improve your IQ results. Steve Gillman is one of them. He thinks that you can increase your IQ ratings by eating salmon fish.

Which diet is your favorite?

At least I shall prefer the salmon fish over the almonds for the level of cholesterol that I get sometimes. But Steve Gillman warns that the salmon fish have ‘a fair amount of fat in them.’ I also fear obesity so I may not become an intelligent person.

The other interesting techniques include; sniffing of Rosemary, writing and believing yourself smart when you are not, and playing music. Read this fantastical article without arguing unnecessarily. The author feels that arguments/debate becomes dangerous when ego take over.

P.S. While enjoying this fantastical article don’t forget the reality. The psychologists have observed through many studies that you can improve IQ results by practicing the intelligence tests. It is advisable to spend a sufficient amount of time on this website to read ‘between the items’ before attempting real sessions of the personality, aptitude and intelligence tests.

Improve IQ

Can you improve IQ and brainpower in general? You bet, and it isn't always difficult. I write about dozens of techniques for iq and general brainpower improvement, and I have seen IQ scores go up by applying these techniques. A more usable brain is more important than a score, though, so sit down with a cup of coffee (your first IQ improvement tip) and take notes as you read through the list below.

Improve IQ - A Few Ways

Improve your beliefs. When you believe you are smarter, you become smarter. Though affirmations may work, evidence is even better, so make a note of your successes. Start telling yourself, "Hey, that was really creative," when you do something creative. When you have a good idea, make a note of it. Gather the evidence for your own IQ improvement and you'll start to experience more of it as you believe in it.

Sniffing Things

Rosemary may have an effect on the brain when the scent is inhaled. I am waiting for the research, but some people swear that just sniffing rosemary wakes up their brain.

With safe techniques like this, I say give it a try. You probably have rosemary in your spice rack. I have been smelling everything in the kitchen, and it sure seems like some things calm me down, while others perk up my brain. This is safe enough that we can all be brain-enhancement science pioneers.


This is good for your mind in a number of ways. You tell your memory what is important, which helps you recall things more easily in the future. Writing is a good way to clarify your thinking, and it is a way to exercise your creativity and analytical ability. Personal diaries, idea-journals, poetry, note-taking and story-writing are all ways to use writing to boost your brain power and improve iq.

Play Mozart

Researchers found, in a study at the University of California, that children who studied piano and sang daily in chorus, were much better at solving puzzles, and when tested, scored 80% higher in spatial intelligence than the non-musical group. In another study, 36 students were given three spatial reasoning tests on a standard IQ test. Just before the first test, they listened to Mozart's sonata for Two Pianos in D Major, K. 448 for ten minutes. Before the second test, they listened to a relaxation tape. Before the third, they sat in silence. The average scores for all 36 students: 1st test: 119. 2nd test: 111. 3rd test: 110. Improve iq by nine-points with Mozart!

Eat Fish

Eating fish speeds up brain waves, and improves concentration. Researchers have also found an almost perfect correlation between intake of fish and lowered levels of depression in the various countries of the world. The U.S. has 24 times the incidence of depression as Japan, for example, where fish intake is much higher. Not all fish are equal, though. Try to eat salmon and other fish that have a fair amount of fat in them.

Stop Unnecessary Arguing

Defend a position too vigorously, especially when it is just to "win" the argument, and you invest your ego into it. Ego-defending is not conducive to the easy acceptance and use of new information. In other words, you put your mind in a rut, and you dig it deeper with each argument. Debate can be a valuable thing, but when the ego takes over, the mind closes a little. This is not a way to improve IQ.
