there's a "game" called dual n-back that does improve working memory but you will find the experience of playing it agonizing
Get into a board game like go, shogi, riichi mahjong etc
Do sudoku and crosswords. Other games that help are turn based strategy and, dont laugh, doing Dynasty mode on Madden/Whatever sports (its like putting together a puzzle kinda) And also if you have high emotional and or verbal IQ I think that is more important than math/logic anyways. Just my advice
I'll take a look at it:-)
if I actually find the motivation. looks kinda hard to get into.>>53218
much more with those. they require a lot of will power I'm afraid to learn all the rules and stuff.>>53220>if you have high emotional and or verbal IQ
Intelligence is a generalized ability to solve problems and it seems stable throughout life. You can't increase it by playing video games or doing difficult cognitive tasks because you only get better at that particular task. If you spend a thousand hours playing chess, you will get better at chess, but your generalized ability to solve problems will remain stable. Even experts in particular fields are rarely better at things outside of it because it never generalizes.
If your only motivation to play these games is to increase intelligence then don't bother, you'll just get better at virtual abstract tasks. Maybe read books or learn programming because at the end of all that effort you acquire some knowledge or practical skill. Anything you do for a prolonged amount of time, you'll get better at, but not everything is worth the time and effort investment.
I named the one exception and that is dual n-back. It only improves one aspect of IQ and that is working memory. It isn't fun, perhaps even painful, and can hardly be considered a game.
I thought it was settled that DNB didn't even improve WM meaningfully? In any case, the factor loading is in the wrong direction here, so it doesn't matter.
>>53213>Is there a way to improve this with video games?
Research on the subject is a bit sketchy and I strongly doubt you would like the kinds of games that have any effect.
Like there are straigh up educational game, or ones built on logic puzzles and reasoning skills, or even just autism fulled sim and stratagy games that requre you to use your brains to actually do well.
the kind of puzzle games you seem to be talking about would do nothing.
Go play some actual educational games.
The PSP is a great console
Never was a fan myself.
Preferred the DS.
i remember getting a psp and being too afraid to ask for games so i ended up just using its web browser to look at porn
world was crazy before smartphones
Kula World has apetizing sound effects.
It is quite fun indeed.
interesting game mechanic
Puzzle games don't actually make you any smarter.
At least not the kind you seem to be taking about.
thanks for the suggestion. will be putting that on my psp
If I held my psp at juuuust the right angle against the wall I could get the neighbor's wifi to connect to my psp so I could look at porn.
life was *better before smartphones
probably one of the most devastating inventions of the 21st century.I have to admit the psp was pretty much a precurser, but nothing compared to the hell smartphones have brought upon this world
I hate you faggots who just can't help but post an image when replying it's like you think no one will see/care if you don't.
that image is cute, it's also funny and made me laugh
Anime posters are all attention whores who pretend to be smug despite being the most insecure. This insecurity is why they have to post anime faces all the time, they don't think their posts have enough merit to stand on their own.
pretty sure it's from loli porn
ignorance is bliss i guess
