Apparently, scientists say no:

https://www.ncbi.nlm...les/PMC3950413/

 

But probably scientists haven't tested *all* the methods used to (let's imagine) increase your IQ: What about learning to use both sides of your brain with learning guitar with the left hand (for a right-handed person)? What about increasing the number of your social relationship? What about changing job to put yourself in a challenging situation?  etc...

 

True, only neurons in the brain center of memory can be renewed: it's different from the muscle for example where you can increase your muscle mass and then your power. So there's no scientific theory which could allow your own IQ to increase.

 

What's your opinion on this?

It has been shown that half of all scientific studies can't be replicated so I now take everything with a grain of salt.

 

That paper isn't even a study, it is an opinion piece with references to papers that support the author's position.  I highly suspect you can professionals in the field with the opposite opinion that can also cite papers that support their position.

 

So a paper of that nature doesn't sway me much one way or the other.  What would be interesting would be a debate between knowledgeable people on each side of the issue.

Yes 5-10 points.  And it takes some level of consistency, lifestyle changes.  And some caution helps too, the way this lot thinks.

I think there have been studies on identical twins separated at birth that show there is a little bit of 'wiggle-room', and that lifestyle, especially during formative years can either increase or decrease IQ.  But it's not a huge amount, something like +- 4 points.  But I suppose an 8 point swing could have a huge affect on someone's future.

Avoid getting to much muscles (bodybuilding) because I think maybe it will decrease blood flow to your brain and more to the muscles. Unless your body creates more blood. So keep iron levels healthy.

Chinese people are smart because they are atheists and well balanced values  (with everything in life) and a lot have access to internet. thats why china is successful. and strict laws. so I would say all these things for IQ points. Even thought it might not seem good it works to some extent keeps order. https://old.reddit.c...stroy_vitamins/

And one other way is to use drugs that increase pain, fear, decrease neurogenesis and so on on a person, for x amount of time, this will make the person stronger, make him study and do things and it will be very difficult, then get him off the drugs and get him healthy, and he will become very smart.

genetic research shows genetic variations linked to higher IQ more common in asians.   It might not be politically correct, but most of the time when you're naturally taller or faster, it is biological and not a result of anything special you did(aside from avoiding malnutrition.)
