IQ and genius are often muddled up, the one mistaken for the other. However, new theories suggest that there may be seven key types of intelligence. This makes it vital to understand exactly what intelligence is. This book examines several of the world's greatest historical geniuses, concentrating on the common threads between their lives to find valuable insights into the way genius is formed. Once the nature of genius is established, The Genius Test offers a range of absorbing tests that will allow the reader to gain an idea of both IQ and level of genius. Specially devised tests challenge the reader in their capacity for the mental elements that go into producing genius. There even exercises to help the reader unleash their maximum mental potential.
Wie intelligent möchten Sie sein? Der IQ ist ein Maßstab für unsere aktuelle Leistung, aber nicht für unser Potenzial. Intelligenz ist keine angeborene, unveränderbare Größe. Das ist mittlerweile wissenschaftlich erforscht. Medikamente oder Drogen sind nicht die einzige Möglichkeit, dieses Potenzial freizusetzen. Wie wirken sich elektrische oder magnetische Impulse auf die Erkenntnis aus? Was kann aus Forschungen mit Synästhetikern, Autisten oder Inselbegabten (Savants) abgeleitet werden? David Adam taucht ein in die Welt der Intelligenzforschung, inklusive Selbstversuche mit Pillen und Denkkappen. Und so erfahren wir, wie wir unsere Intelligenz hacken können.
