Your IQ is determined by measuring your problem solving abilities, memory, general knowledge, and spatial imagery. The average God-given IQ of an adult is 150. It cannot be increased by medical science, because of the microbiology of the brain. It can, however, be improved. The average effective (day-to-day) IQ is only 100-110, mostly due to neglect – lack of brain exercises. Therefore, if you exercise your brain, you can increase your effective IQ. Word puzzles, such as Scramblex, provide the necessary mental activity.Mental ExerciseWord puzzles help expand vocabulary, strengthen word recall, and improve memory.
