WHY WE MUST UNDERSTAND OUR OWN INTELLIGENCE?
You observe many intelligent people on television and other media. You read about scientist and wonder about their brain functioning like a super computer. But, did you know you are not less intelligent than those people? Then what is keeping you behind? Basically, you develop two types of process that leads you a step further in your progress. First process is your ability to retrieve knowledge from your memory.
This is the initially grasped and habitually developed process by which you learn to remember and recollect. In the quiz contest, participants have astounding memory of recall. Many times it happens when you are asked a question from your text book and you scratch your brain to recall the answer. In this case, your memory has the answer but not delivered to the senses. Thus, you keep on thinking but could not recall. When you are exposed to the answer you strike out like you already knew it but couldn't remember for that moment.
A good memory lies in good grasping power and good retrieving (recall) power. When you are stuck on a question in the exam, you try to recall the answer, but couldn't get it right. After walking out from the exam hall you think of the same question and surprisingly the answer strikes in a moment. So, what had happened in exam hall? You couldn't write the answer! In this case, you might have a good memory but the time of recall was lacking behind. You could recall the answer after the exam but not during the exam. Here, it is important to build a recall memory. There is no medicine for it except to revise. Memory recall can be developed by regular practice and stressing you brain a little more.
The secret behind the educational success lies in how much you can produce and not how much you have learned. A person with poor grasping power but good recall power is actually in shape. The question rises who is greater? A person with good grasping power or good retrieving power? Well, the answer is both. Many times the people having good grasping power learns very fast and forgets what they have learned. They need to revise again. While at the opposite end of the spectrum, a slow grasping memory can produce anything what they have learned at anytime.
Researchers of California held an experiment where students from different schools were called and given 20 questions and answers to learn in 2 hours. In an average, the students who had greater grasping power answered 18 questions correctly, whereas, students having low gasping power answered only 11 questions correctly.
After seven days the students were called again for a test to see how much they remember. Surprisingly, the students who had answered 18 questions could answer only five questions whereas, the students having low grasping power answered 11 questions correctly.
Life is not a single way journey and for real success one must develop good grasping and retrieving power equally. Meditation can be an exercise but frequent practice and revision is the secret of scholars.
