The intelligence quotient (IQ) is a measure of intelligence that is adjusted for age. The Wechsler Adult lntelligence Scale (WAIS) is the most widely used IQ test for adults. Brain volume, speed of neural transmission, and working memory capacity are related to IQ.
If you wanted to become more intelligent (not just iQ) and train your brain to work faster and more efficiently, then you instead need to
1) Train your working memory
2) Use physical coordination challenges to stimulate your brain to grow new brain cells through the production of brain derived neurotrophic factor, a type of growth hormone that produces new brain cells.
Whoever studies EQ has advantage because almost no one ever studies it.
