of them.

Article Body:
Can you improve IQ and brainpower in general? You bet, and it isn't
always difficult. I write about dozens of techniques for iq and general
brainpower improvement, and I have seen IQ scores go up by applying these
techniques. A more usable brain is more important than a score, though,
so sit down with a cup of coffee (your first IQ improvement tip) and take
notes as you read through the list below.

<b>Improve IQ - A Few Ways</b>

Improve your beliefs. When you believe you are smarter, you become
smarter. Though affirmations may work, evidence is even better, so make a
note of your successes. Start telling yourself, "Hey, that was really
creative," when you do something creative. When you have a good idea,
make a note of it. Gather the evidence for your own IQ improvement and
you'll start to experience more of it as you believe in it.

Sniffing things. Rosemary may have an effect on the brain when the scent
is inhaled. I am waiting for the research, but some people swear that
just sniffing rosemary wakes up their brain. With safe techniques like
this, I say give it a try. You probably have rosemary in your spice rack.
I have been smelling everything in the kitchen, and it sure seems like
some things calm me down, while others perk up my brain. This is safe
enough that we can all be brain-enhancement science pioneers.

Write. This is good for your mind in a number of ways. You tell your
memory what is important, which helps you recall things more easily in
the future. Writing is a good way to clarify your thinking, and it is a
way to exercise your creativity and analytical ability. Personal
diaries, idea-journals, poetry, note-taking and story-writing are all
ways to use writing to boost your brain power and improve iq.

Play Mozart. Researchers found, in a study at the University of
California, that children who studied piano and sang daily in chorus,
were much better at solving puzzles, and when tested, scored 80% higher
in spatial intelligence than the non-musical group. In another study, 36
students were given three spatial reasoning tests on a standard IQ test.
Just before the first test, they listened to Mozart's sonata for Two
Pianos in D Major, K. 448 for ten minutes. Before the second test, they
listened to a relaxation tape. Before the third, they sat in silence. The
average scores for all 36 students: 1st test: 119. 2nd test: 111. 3rd
test: 110. Improve iq by nine-points with Mozart!

Eat fish. Eating fish speeds up brain waves, and improves concentration.
Researchers have also found an almost perfect correlation between intake
of fish and lowered levels of depression in the various countries of the
world. The U.S. has 24 times the incidence of depression as Japan, for
example, where fish intake is much higher. Not all fish are equal,
though. Try to eat salmon and other fish that have a fair amount of fat
in them.

Stop unnecessary arguing. Defend a position too vigorously, especially
when it is just to "win" the argument, and you invest your ego into it.
Ego-defending is not conducive to the easy acceptance and use of new
information. In other words, you put your mind in a rut, and you dig it
deeper with each argument. Debate can be a valuable thing, but when the
ego takes over, the mind closes a little. This is not a way to improve
IQ.
