Brain Power?

Postby LeeMills77 » Sat Jul 31, 2021 10:30 am

Hi peeps,

Just a query really as I’m puzzled why our brains are the way they are.

Not sure what my IQ is but it’s probably between 100 and 120. So, not a genius but some brains to achieve some limited success.

My question is – why are some people absolute geniuses, with a verbal iq of 170 and can quickly grasp concepts and analytically pull apart concepts within minutes, while other people really cannot function at all; they can never understand concepts and have difficulty even following instructions. And yet, they have the same brain. What is that difference between their brains? Is there anything that can be done to boost their neural connections?

I ask because I would sacrifice a hell of a lot to boost my IQ by even 10-15 points. I understand games like Luminous don’t work, but I like to think the film Limitless could happen.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Lee.

I believe it has more to do with nurture than nature.

I know of male twins adopted soon after birth (by the same couple) who are now highly successful, intelligent and creative businessmen.

I've also met many of their biological relatives, most of whom are average, two of whom have IQs under 100 (need living assistance).

This is GOOD news, because as an adult you can nurture your own brain. There's plenty of online advice about that.
