Can You Make Yourself Smarter? [Infographic]

We can’t get all our learning from school; the bulk of our knowledge has to come from real life experiences. Because, let’s face it, none of us are born a genius. We can read books, learn all the facts, memorize all the names and dates, but none of that means much if we don’t actually know how to learn.

There are two types of knowledge: crystallized and fluid. Crystallized knowledge are things like trivia or riding a bike, things you don’t really forget. Fluid knowledge is a little different. It’s the ability to learn and to think critically. Logical thinking skills are essential, and was once thought to be unattainable via practice. Information processing and problem solving skills are not believed to be improved by training the brain with simple exercises. Matching and memory games have always been a popular choice, even for children. It boosts the memory centers of the brain through the strategic activity of reaching short-term memory. Puzzles are also a classic pastime for many people. Solving puzzles requires the integrated interpretation of multiple sets of information whether it’s words, colors, shapes, or patterns.
