    read but eventually the page starts to swim and i get disoriented... no i dont need glasses. i havent got the attention span to do anything more but skim things anyway.
    i know this kind of shit. its amazing how a different live-style can contribute to or take away from spiritual constitution.

    living 4 weeks with nice people, doing gymnastics in the morning, doing some therapeutic trance work twice a week, being in nature, trying to find myself - doubled tripled my ability to read and focus/comprehend.

    4 weeks of sitting alone at home with the noisy computer, being annoyed by other Internet users, hunting down random useless bits of information - took it away again.


    for me it seems, that as a feeling type, i should not live like a cliche enneagram 'five', as much as i like to do that. i can be intp, too *g* but not the best example of intp.


    i believe in omega 3, but don't takes substitutes. i just eat fish sometimes ...
    also, sugar and phenylalanin and caffeine are evil.

    started playing the keyboard
    in case anyone cares ... the trance work i mentioned, its called taketina. or T.A.K.E.T.I.N.A its like playing piano, except it really works right away and does not involve a piano

    the down side is, that you are not likely to do that alone. it's a group thing.

    TaKeTiNa Rhythm Process - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    TaKeTiNa

    not the best demonstration, i think :

    YouTube - What is TaKeTiNa?

    this one is way better:

    I've been IQ 160 most my life, dropped to 145 after my burnout, once did an iq test of only 108 or so, then returned to 145.. now I'm working my way up to 160 again.

    Care about your life, concentrate (if it works for you), be free (if it works for you), see things in a wider perspective, including what medical treatment, exercise etc works for you. Don't hesitate to do what's good for you. Don't seek for comfort, ease or anything of the kind; seek comfort from doing, thinking, experience or anything.. anything, ANYTHING but just "not thinking about it" or "just being". Idleness screws you over. Not caring screws you over.

    Entering in the mode of "just being", "just existing" is deadly for your IQ.

    Pardon my low-IQ writing style, I haven't found a strong enough connection between writing well when drunk and getting the necessary satisfaction. Hence, my writing style varies. Hope I've been of some help.

    good point.

    These are some ways to increase intelligence:
    read
    write down your thoughts
    think about the future
    think about everythinhg
    play chess
    never talk to sensors


    the last point is extremely important.

    Thanks, but I'd thought it was fairly obvious I wasn't asserting any sort of refined theory here; simply a lighthearted, general opinion, and a more or less awkward stab at some humor.


    I'm also assuming your initial response to the OP denoted a touch of cynical humor. Pardon if I'd misinterpreted.
    In all seriousness.. I actually did find that to be a thought-provoking remark on your part.

    I'm not entirely sure your basic generalization, "more intelligent people tend to be miserable," holds any actual validty, though it'd make for an interesting thread here in of itself. A survey of opinions from the general public, more or less. Researching any stats offered in scholarly journals of qualitative social sciences, etc., to find possible correlations between IQ scores & emotional functionality seems like an objective enough approach to supplement it.. I'm sure it's been done before, and the information's out there somewhere.


    I know a decent amount of intellectually gifted people IRL. Most seem to maintain a balanced perspective, tolerate stress well, and tend to find a fair degree of humor in aspects of life that may, conversely, serve to depress people with poorly developed coping skills.
    I s'pose that begs the whole Nature vs Nurture question.. and how much of our capacity to learn is limited by unhealthy upbringings, or if/how & how much/little IQ impacts/plays a role in the development of overall emotional resiliency in a person (or vice-versa)...

    Do you have suggestions for improving my NP-like intelligence? I'm in a kind of a creative rut right now. Or so I feel.

    ^Nah, I was just being a bitch.

    It's just a personal observation, which seems to hold true anecdotally. I haven't done any research on it.

    But the OP hasn't explained why she feels the need to be more intelligent - what purpose would it serve? Does she think it will make her happier? Unlikely.

    I don't think any extremes are healthy. People who put themselves under too much pressure to excel in any narrow area of life tend to lose focus and miss the bigger picture. They are often driven by fear and a nagging sense of impending failure which no amount of achievement will allay. They are looking for answers without understanding the question.

    Intelligence is a tool, not an end in itself.

    I completely agree but at the same time, I feel much happier than when I was being both intelligent and intellectual.

    There's not much intelligence needed to be happy though. Somehow, happiness neglects intelligence but I can't connect it. I'm sorry.

    Make a mistake.

    If I'd increase my intelligence, I wouldn't be able to understand myself anymore.
