  • Become more observant... ...and less opinionated.
  • This from Wikipedia: Intelligence (also called intellect) is an umbrella term used to describe a property of the mind that encompasses many related abilities, such as the capacities to reason, to plan, to solve problems, to think abstractly, to comprehend ideas, to use language, and to learn. There are several ways to define intelligence. In some cases, intelligence may include traits such as creativity, personality, character, knowledge, or wisdom. However, most psychologists prefer not to include these traits in the definition of intelligence. So if I read this correctly, you can't increase your intelligence. BUT, you CAN increase your KNOWLEDGE. Or am I just full of...?

      That was my understanding as well.
  • It depends what part of your intelligence you want to improve. I would suggest expanding your vocabulary allows you to understand certain concepts more broadly. Omega 3 fish oil is supposed to help, but I think type of stimulus is just as important. Knowledge - Read books, not newspapers, TV is certainly good for some things. Logic & Lateral Thinking - There are many puzzles and things you can find on the web, probably some very good books too :-) Its always good to look at different perspectives about the same subject. You learn more about the floors of certain thinking from a counter perspective. Finally make your own judgements and ask questions, don't just agree, investigate.
  • Learn from your mistakes. Learn from the mistakes of others.
  • Take advantage of every opportunity to learn more. Learn from others' experiences (both good and bad) and read or take classes when possible.
  • Ask questions
  • go online,lie to as many people as possiable and get involved in their lives this way you can steal neccessary information from each person there for you can get what you want

  • Keep your mouth shut and offer no opinion.

      So is your information faulty or your behavior?
  • Intelligence is innate. You either have it or you don't.
  • I think intelligence is largely genetic and most of these answers are about knowledge instead of intelligence. Even so, many experts think there are different kinds of intelligence. While reading will help it won't give you experience, which is another way to learn a lot. And if you want wisdom that comes from spiritual learning and practice. Just my opinion.
  • Turn Off Mainstream News. Choose your company wisely. Put people around you that believe in you and your abilities.
  • Intelligence is determined by brain activity. The brain is a clump of neurons interconnected in various ways. By exercising your brain, you can alter the way in which those neurons interact with one another and the speed at which they can react. Solving puzzles, interacting with different parts of the world in different ways, and just generally utilizing your intelligence through work or play will give your brain the necessary stimuli to organize itself more efficiently.
    • Texasescimo
      Interesting, how do you suppose that came about and how long did it take?
  • At the risk of going against the majority, I would say create.
  • Pick up a book.
  • Do brain teasers, ie puzzles that help you think more clearly, logically. Read as much as you can, especially nonfiction.
