Brain Training Report – Travis – Stage 3, Session 4

Stage: 3

Session number: 4

Average n-back: 3.2

Its coming along. To Claudia: (It won’t let me login to reply directly for some reason): I’m only slightly ahead of you in training sessions and I had the same question. I’m now getting more comfortable at N=3. It doesn’t seem to matter how hard you concentrate in fact that seems to make it worse. It really seems like the key is to get yourself in the right state of mind.
I do try to say the letter and look at the square where I am expecting the answer to be. If its not there, the trick seems to be to not change your state of mind or react mentally/emotionally in anyway to the wrong answer, but replace the answer you were expecting with the new one and keep track of where you are in the sequence. If I can’t get it I just start counting over. If I stop paying attention for even a second or get too excited by getting a right answer, I get out of the zone and stop doing well.
