Intelligent Quotient is the core of Intellectuality . Everyone has an individual intelligence quotient, which is a number indicating your inherent ability to learn instead of simply the knowledge you already have.
Lewis Terman (1916) developed the original notion of IQ and proposed this scale for classifying IQ scores:
• Over 140 – Genius or near genius
• 120 – 140 – Very superior intelligence
• 110 – 119 – Superior intelligence
• 90 – 109 – Normal or average intelligence
• 80 – 89 – Dullness
• 70 – 79 – Borderline deficiency
• Under 70 – Definite feeble-mindedness
Some of the ways to boost your IQ are :
• Meditation – . This helps your brain focus on one specific thing at a time and can help improve overall focus.
• Exercise- Exercise is known to stimulate brain cell growth.
• Sleep Optimization – A proper 8 hour sleep should be taken .
• Do practice tests-Logic puzzles such as Sudoku are the cherry on the cake when it comes to exercising the brain. While there is no substantive evidence that brain teasers actually improve intellect, it is well proven that mental challenges help hone your sharpness. Jigsaw puzzles help engage the brain and encourage the retention of information about shapes and colors
• Think Creatively – Creative cognition involves divergent thinking and generating original, novel ideas.
• Friendly Debate – Discuss, don’t argue. When you are in a debate you should try to persuade, but welcome opposing ideas not as attacks but opportunities. Debating forces you to examine your opinions.
