Improving problem solving.

RE: Improving problem solving.
From what I've gathered, a higher IQ means superior brain activity; better pattern recognition, associations, problem solving, working memory etc, and from what I've read it's quite inherent. That is fluid intelligence, whereas crystallized intelligence is applying old information to new situations and such.

I got a pretty got tip for you, which I learned at my IT classes regarding problem solving. But I'm only will share it, if you complete "quest" I invented for you.

Quest: Make three good photos in the city you live, things that you think are worth showing here. Then I'll share my tip.

If you agree to complete my "quest", don't just copy past photos from the web, because I can use "photo recognition" app. You will need to make your own photos.

"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great

Sure! Good thing I already have some of those pictures in my gallery.

Alright, I'll share the tip anyway.

Our brain can hold a "chain" of 5 logical tasks simultaneously. Limitation is there, to prevent damage when we overload our brain. So, when you tackle a complex task, you should divide it in small pieces, that way things will go better. I'm just starting my education, so, I didn't went so far in it to test this tip on myself. Anyway, it wont hurt if you try it.

If you will find this tip helpful, then don't forget to do "quest" I issued.

I got a good update on a way to improve your problem solving skills.

Imagine, you are an architect and you need to build a house(a combination of construction materials).

First, you study each element, which will possible be used in building that structure. Then, you need connect those elements properly. And if you are junior architect, you will start with the simplest combinations.

In my programming classes I have spend days to write my first decent junior level program, but when I take this "from the simple to complex" approach, I think, I have written one of the best programs in the class, because most of the people didn't even completed it when teacher checked last time and had to shift the test date.

RE: Improving problem solving.
The best way to solve a difficult problem is to take a long break.

I'm serious. Sometimes when I get stuck doing a difficult problem I close my computer and go out to play football. Then you end up seeing a dog taking a piss in a terrible unconventional stance and you think to yourself, "holy shit, that's it!"
