thanks for your replies!! I think I was a little vague when I posted my initial question, so I apologize. Let me be more specific.
I wanted to find some sources of books or particular practical exercises that actually expand my neurological networks. Buzan's mindmapping and the einstein factor are really good books and very helpful in understanding how our brains actually work. so based on that, i wanted to find and utilize truly actionable tools (i know that i could do tons of mindmaps, but they take a lot of time...). some have told me before that doing iq tests, would help me build certain thinking patterns, but i am not really sure if that truly helps me, because i have a feeling that it builds my "solving mensa sort of puzzles"-iq. those problems don't really seem applicable in many situations. sure simply experiencing and reading, and truly thinking about those experiences and books expands our neurological networks, but are other tools? No, not expensive subliminal tapes, etc, but more tangible?
i guess that the mensa puzzles might be good, but are there other sources there? does anyone else think that these puzzle books (like those from mensa) build our neurological pathways and allow us to somehow use the thinking patterns on other things? maybe someone knows of really good thinking pattern books???
again, your feeback would be excellent!!
ps: nickr, you mention a "Centerointe program [that] stimulates neurological growth" and i was curious what tangible difference u felt? i saw that it costs a ton of money. are u using any other resources aside from that perhaps? are those tapes similiar to what paul scheele offers? i am not a big fan of subliminal tapes, so what is your take on that?
