Brain Games Will Not Increase Your I.Q.

submitted on April 21, 2010 by pablos17 in "Member's Lounge"
* Playing brain games may not actually improve your intellect.
* I.Q. tests reveal that brain game players didn't get any smarter.
* These games are probably as effective as Super Mario in boosting I.Q.

    This is total BS: "These games are probably as effective as Super Mario in boosting I.Q."

    All this study shows that surfing internet and answering questions is as good at increasing your I.Q. as playing brain games

    They were compared to more than 2,700 people who didn't play any brain games, but spent a similar amount of time surfing the Internet and answering general knowledge questions. All participants were given a sort of I.Q. test before and after the experiment.

    I believe that socializing on Buxr is the best way too boost one's I.Q. and overall knowledge of anything and everything.

    Do Brain Games claim to increase your IQ? The article mentions "enhance memory, reasoning and other cognitive skills." I don't think that is specifically increasing IQ. Or am I just splitting semantic hairs?
