Is it possible to become more intelligent?

         From what we know today, it is not possible to increase intelligence, either with the use of some kind of brain machine or by taking special dietary supplements. Nevertheless, it is possible to compensate for low intelligence by exercising the brain and acquiring knowledge and experience. That is why it is important to stimulate less intelligent children-those with Down syndrome, for example-as much as possible. Of course, people of average intelligence can perform better than those with above-average brainpower in particular areas where their accumulated knowledge-in other words, their crystallized intelligence-is superior. Chess is regarded as the greatest of all strategic games, and studies have shown that highly intelligent beginners don't fare so well when matched against less intelligent experts who have been playing for a long time.
