• I don't take steps to make myself more intelligent, I guess I should do mental activities!! I do make a lot of steps to educate myself though, I read a lot, take extra courses etc
  • use analogies. It makes you sound smart. It means you can connect two disparate things.
  • I do two crossword puzzles a weekday, and try to read a book a week. Anything from historical biographies to westerns to this gem I'm fixing to finish in a few here are return for a new book at the library, "Pounding the Pavement." A total recommended read!! The author's awfully cute, too. :-)
  • Read a lot of Science books.
  • Observe and analyze everything critically (in a silent manner, people tend to get annoyed if you're a vocal critique). Ask yourself a lot of questions and hunt down the answers. Here are some of my favorite quotes. Analyze them and take them to heart if you agree. "Belief without evidence in what is told by one who speaks without knowledge, of things without parallel." - Ambrose Bierce "Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it." - Buddha
