Brain Training Report – Safzoro – Session 20

Session number: 20

Average n-back: 4.35

Duration (estimate in minutes): hours!

Yes, got about 4 at last! For me this is slow work.

I’m wondering whether anyone has any experience of ‘Onetest’? It’s an Australian developed screening test based loosely on the Wonderlic concept of a quick assessment of cognitive aptitude. The only problem is that 1/5 of the questions have more than one valid answer – and the more creative you are, the more possible answers you can see. My husband, (double first class honours Maths & Physics, PhD Physics, leading building scientist) couldn’t immediately answer this particular line of questions.

    Hello, Safzoro.

    Well done!

    Reaching 4.35 in 20 sessions is not slow work at all. It just feels that way. You’ve increased your working memory and focus span by about 4 items (two visual and two auditory) and by about 6 seconds (about 85%). That’s a huge jump.

    Any day-to-day benefits revealing themselves yet?

    I’m not familiar with the Onetest, but I’ve taken a variation of the Wonderlic and found the same thing. Too much ambiguity in the answers combined with some overly simple mathematical / logical questions.

    I’m not aware of the day-to-day benefits as yet, but as mentioned earlier this is probably because what will be noticed is an absence (of memory related errors) rather than a presence. Perhaps my attention while driving is improving?
