- Number Game -

This is a fun test. I first ran 100 trials and managed 85%, and then did another 25 trials and did 92%. I found I had the most success when I let my mind go completely and just went with feeling. But I also had to stay focused: when my attention wandered, I made some amazingly egregious errors. I also clearly learned how to perform better as I went along, so if the talent is indeed innate, accessing it and putting it to instrumental use is susceptible to some degree of training. I mention this only because I can see results from tests like this feeding into debates of gut vs. intellect.
