Yes, Brain teaser games may improve your brainpower. But mainly for increasing your ability to answer brain teasers. Repetition trains and conditions the brain, whether we want it to or not.
I suggest searching the web for subjects that excite your brain because you are more likely to remember the details. Absorb as much as info as you can. At some time, you should be able to ask intelligent questions. If you cannot find the answers online, then pressure your brain to come up with a solution. If possible, become obsessed with discovering the answers. They should be the first thing you think of in the morning, and the last, before falling asleep.
Once you begin getting responses from your brain, you will be exercising your imagination. Keep it up for 4–5 months, and your vision will be “on” full time. You’ll be able to see connections that others miss. You’ll have inspired thoughts, inspired dreams and encouraged questions.
Example: Why don’t we eat our favorite food at every meal? Because its emotional value changes over time, as does the amount of most things in life. Sentimental value is how we evaluate all things, to make choices. And it determines what we remember.
An Example Of Brain Teaser Game
We have 11 camels and 30003000 bananas. The camel can carry up to 10001000 bananas at a time on its back. There is a market 10001000 miles away. Every instant the camel is traveling, it must eat at the rate of 11 banana per mile. We can drop bananas safely along the way to pick them up later. What is the highest number of bananas we can get to the store if the camel can only take the bananas? How?
Example Simple Solution (Not Optimal):
The camel carries 10001000 bananas to mile 250250, drops 500500 bananas there, and then returns to mile 00. Then, it again takes 10001000 bananas to mile 250250, drops 500500 bananas there, and returns to mile 00. Then it brings the last batch of 10001000 bananas to mile 250250, so the camel is at mile 250250, and there are 17501750 bananas there. Then the camel carries 10001000 bananas to mile 500500, drops 500500 bananas there, and returns to mile 250250. It then takes the remaining 750750 bananas to mile 500500, so the camel is at mile 500500 with 10001000 bananas. Then it takes the 10001000 bananas to mile 10001000. We end up with 500500 bananas reaching the market.
Generalization: Once we figure out the optimal solution for the above puzzle, we can generalize to figure out the answer when we start with banana. Moreover, the camel can carry up to mm bananas at a time, the market is kk miles away, and the camel eats at the rate of bananas per mile (where n,m,k,r∈R+n,m,k,r∈R+). For our specific puzzle, n=3000n=3000, m=k=1000m=k=1000, and r=1r=1.
