Well, looking for passing one of my certification exams I found this piece of software: HighIQ Pro. This is a new brain training program for Windows that provides you with great selection of brain training tools at an affordable price.
The documentation says that training with this brain training exercise for 19 days, during 20 minutes per day, has resulted in:
- 60% increase in short term/working memory
- 40-50% increase in IQ on a time-limited valid IQ test
HighIQPro utilizes the only brain training exercise scientifically demonstrated to improve:
- short term & working memory
- problem solving IQ - known scientifically as "fluid intelligence" or "Gf".
- executive functioning – task focus, task management & self-control / will power
The concept of fluid intelligence is the reasoning, learning, and problem solving ability in new situations. This is the core component of IQ.
Fluid intelligence (Gf) refers to the ability to reason and to solve new problems independently of previously acquired knowledge. …it allows us to adapt our thinking to a new cognitive problem or situation. Gf is critical for a wide variety of cognitive tasks, and it is considered one of the most important factors in learning.
