DailyDirt: Correlations For Being Smart
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
If there were some simple things you could do that would make you smarter, you’d do them, right? Unfortunately, it’s difficult to guarantee that a particular activity will actually cause you to be smarter. If you’ll settle for a nice correlation, though, there are plenty of things to try! Here are just a few.
- People who stay up late and wake up late (aka night owls) seem to be smarter than people who go to sleep early and wake up early. People who are skeptical of this statement are even smarter. [url]
- A study published in JAMA Pediatrics reports that breast-fed babies have measurably higher IQ scores by age 7. Just wait for the manufacturers of infant formula to sponsor another study…. [url]
- College kids who want a slightly higher GPA should join a gym. When hearing this, the smart students ask, “Does just paying for a membership count?” [url]
