Fun Suckers. Walked 14 miles today to try and keep some of the other bits working as well, now I'm shot.

Hi Ratfink,

Good to see you posting still. Are you still addicted to overtrading and when bored doing the dreaded gamble trades?
I hope this is still not the case.

Regards

Col.

Im ok thanks.Have you now resorted to the very limited number of trades per day approach or still addicted and end up being trigger happy when your first daily trade becomes a loser and start to chase your losses and end up like a bear with a big sore head?I used to be like that

There's a lot of talk about research and stuff into lumosity and the other brain games helping to improve IQ and the other things, and I saw a mention that one gentleman here was using the training to keep his OCD in check.

I'd love to know if there's anything which points to elderly people keeping their faculties longer when the usual warning signs of senility start raising their ugly heads.

I'm thinking of my parents who are in their eighties.

Only immediate one I could find is this:

Which suggests the obvious, that training helps task performance, but can't yet say much about rate of cognitive decline or task transfer. Jury has to remain out but, as another who is concerned to stop my own ugly signs of senility I'd rather do something than nothing. Eighties might be a stretch unless they're already computer savvy or keen though.

Fortunately both the people in question are computer-literate although in most other ways they are typical for their age group.

I've seen you @ratfink note that your lumosity score slips when you don't train. That must be a definite wake-up call. If I can persuade them both to train regularly, then at least they can monitor their condition and if their score starts slips over an extended period then it might inspire them to take early remedial action. Early days yet but food supplements, lifestyle changes etc come to mind. Plus of course if there is no decline then even better.

I'm hoping to get more success on the mental fitness side with them than I did on the physical fitness side. Gardening and going up the stairs is their idea of a good work-out

I started doing Lumosity, on a friend's recommendation.

I am skeptical about the claimed cognitive benefits, but I had the goal anyway of starting to play games, any kind of games. I enjoy playing it and the incremental improvement in scores. My initial scores were abysmal, but in just a couple of weeks they have improved dramatically.

Maybe the biggest benefit is that I get something to do together with my kids, age 7 and 12. They love taking my Lumosity account and showing me how to do it. The 7 year old gets three times my score on the suitcase packing game.

Children are very adaptive to make progress on all sort or arcade like games - they are MUCH faster than a average adult.

What I found about Lumosity - it helps you to develop different areas of the brain. It just needs ongoing training

I am learning a new language from scratch - this means to have ALL these pictures in mind...
and to make it worse - the alphabet is different too.

Good learning

It's interesting how Lumosity highlights the different cognitive strengths of people. My elder daughter excels at the pinball game while the younger kills at suitcase packing. The wife loves to crunch numbers.

I have on my Someday/Maybe list to learn a tonal language. I've done the thing with the different alphabet, and also one with ideographs. But the tones of either Thai or Chinese would tickle my brain, I think.

Lumosity Change from BPI to LPI


Don't know about anyone else but this new LPI is kicking my tail end.
Definitely do not want to have a bad day now training in Lumosity or your scores and percentages fall as fast as the market after Mario Draghi gives a speech.

Just realized that I forgot to do my Lumosity today and will do it tomorrow as to late in the eve to do it now.

Seriously though anyone else a tad disturbed at the new LPI. Plus when they introduce a new game to you, they claim it doesn't hurt your scores, but because there are less games going toward score any movement down is amplified.
