LOL; my wife tells me mine is above average.

My intelligence, of course. What did you think I was talking about?

Like I said, I'm slow as hell....

I'm more of a conceptual thinker than a mathlete, but I guess I can't complain.

I'm also terrible at console games...

I dislike the fact that, as a vendor, IQMindWare is commenting directly on Luminosity's program (even though I am using IQM and not Luminosity). Also, there is a question of what the objective is?

Luminosity and some others use brain games approach to in a more simplistic, carrot stick policy, it's a fairly reductionist DP approach.

IQM claims to combine DP with n-feedback, a bit more sophisticated (although I am by no means endorsing the quality of this n-feedback program they have). My objective is see a possible improvement in the "elasticity" of my brain - something that will not only directly affect my trading, but other things as well as a more holistic approach to mental health and acuity.....The n-feedback research seems to suggest an actual increase in ability of your brain to conceptualize rather than just sharpen existing faculties....there is a subtle but huge difference.

After reading Lorenz's post, I decided to give n-backing a try. It has "guaranteed" gains in memory, IQ...etc.

Anyway, I find it awesome. After 36 hrs (and about 130 games), I'm on Dual 3-Back (position and color). It's definitely doing something. The head feels funny (no jokes please ), I see things sharper. I looked at the market today and it felt clearer (the trend off the open might have something to do with it ). When I lied down yesterday after a session, I heard a soft hum in the back of my mind that I didn't recognize before.

Anyways, it's a very short time period.... looking forward to see where it takes me.

As with everything else, is there a metric you can measure to guard yourself against the placebo effect?

I suppose I should have an IQ test before starting..... but N-backing trials offer evidence that there are significant gains for most people (though not for all).

I'd like to invite anybody interested in potential mind-improvement to join me in daily n-backing and report the results. (If you haven't started already, take an IQ before... and then again in 3 months.)
