You can get smarter — and by telling you this, I’m helping you do it

An old link, but still valuable: the American Psychological Association writes about a study that shows that people who believe that intelligence is changeable instead of fixed perform better in school. Granted, that’s not a standardized measure of intelligence, but the results are valuable still. Also interesting is that in one of the studies cited the students involved received only three hours of a presentation on the subject. So if you simply read this post over and over for three hours, you too can be a genius.
