Mental Yoga Week #21: Pick up your Speed

My primary area of interest where mental dexterity is concerned, because of the work I do, is creativity.  However, speed is also a part of mental flexibility.  And, think about it, how many game shows where you can win millions in cash and prizes are about creativity?  They are almost all about speed.

So, you could find someone who likes trivia to make up categories and time them with a stop-watch for you.  Or you could just visit Mental Floss, my favorite online mental flexibility magazine.

Check out their current timed quizzes.  Warning:  they are addictive.  I got the message below AFTER I had already tried my hand at: “Name the last 12 states admitted into the U.S.;”  “Name all the villains in Batman;”  “Name the most congested cities in America.”
