>>7798777 DXM (found in robitussin) in high doses has been shown to strengthen neural pathways in the brain ,acting as a nootropic, and perhaps is able to increase intelligence with repeated use. There is much information online alluding to this.
>>7798777 I hope not. One can improve their test results by training. But that does not make them smarter.
There is another way. In China, scientists have collected DNA samples from 2,000 of the world’s smartest people, and are sequencing their entire genomes in an attempt to identify the alleles that determine human intelligence. Apparently they’re not far from finding them, and when they do, embryo screening will allow parents to pick their brightest zygote and bump up every generation's intelligence by five to 15 IQ points.
I doubt they will be very successful at first but this is scary!
>>7798777 The IQ test that I had took into consideration vocabulary and memory games. Most humans (if they really tried) could train themselves to excel at both of these things but not to a rating of 160+.

A long time ago in ancient Greece the Spartans bred themselves for military prowess and they bred their neighbours for docility (by murdering those they though could one day stand up to the Spartans). Today the Greeks seem incapable of balancing their books. Success? You decide.
