So if you want to impress your boss or your friends with your intelligence, try a few of the techniques below. Some of them may actually improve your thinking skills too.

1. Study a current topic. Everyone has opinions about events in the news, but they usually don’t know much about these things. Learn more than the usual about one such current topic, and have an alternate view and you’ll definitely look smarter to others. If taxes are in the news, for example, not many people will know what the “Laffer Curve” is, and why it is so important. If you can explain this simple but relatively unknown idea, you’ll be the only one in the room with something truly unique to say about the issue.

2. Make it your conversation. Stick to topics you know something about, and you’ll always appear smarter. If there are things about which you are very knowledgeable, steer the conversation towards those subjects.

3. Use questions to look smart. Ask questions to which you know the answer. Immediately follow the other person’s answer with a clarification or another question, and you’ll appear to have understood the issue very quickly.

4. Spend time with intelligent people. Others will notice if you hang out with the most intelligent people around. You’ll may also learn a lot. However, don’t say much, except to ask an occasional smart question.

5. Increase your vocabulary. Read the “Enrich Your Vocabulary” section of Reader’s Digest or open the dictionary each day and choose a word to learn. A bigger vocabulary can impress others, and you’ll get smarter as well, because language is a big part of functional intelligence – but be sure to see the warning below.

6. Know how to use words. You might impress people with a better vocabulary, but using a word incorrectly can immediately lower their opinion of your intelligence. Expand that vocabulary, but use those words only when you are sure your usage is correct.

7. Have an obscure specialty. Suppose you know a little bit about the history of the Inuit people or the origin of gold mining. You’ll likely be the only one in the room who knows anything about these. This sets you apart, and any errors you make will pass undetected as well. Talk a bit about your “specialty” to impress, but be careful not to bore your audience with too much obscure knowledge.

8. Play a few intelligent games. Many people immediately think you are more intelligent when they learn that you play chess – and playing it might also help you get smarter. Scrabble will impress as well, and improve your vocabulary. Another intelligent game? Using the techniques here.

9. Openly appreciate other’s ideas. When someone has a great idea or a unique understanding of an issue, compliment them for it. When you recognize a person’s intelligence, he or she will often think you are more intelligent. And shouldn’t we give credit where credit is due in any case?

10. Learn a little about a lot of topics. Instead of reading only the usual magazines that interest you, browse several that cover unfamiliar subjects. Knowing a little about many things not only makes you appear more knowledgeable, but could help you get smarter as well. With enough general knowledge, when a woman brings up her favorite topic, you can ask an intelligent question to impress her and to learn more from her. It will impress people when you are familiar enough with a topic to know what to ask.

EDU – In Finland, the basic right to education and culture is recorded in the Constitution of Finland. Public authorities must secure equal opportunities for every resident in Finland to get education also after compulsory education and to develop themselves, irrespective of their financial standing. educationLegislation provides for compulsory education and the right to free pre-primary and basic education. Most other qualifying education is also free of charges for the students, including postgraduate education at universities. The key words in Finnish education policy are quality, efficiency, equity and internationalisation. Education is a factor for competitiveness. The current priorities in educational development are to raise the level of education and upgrade competencies among the population and the work force, to improve the efficiency of the education system, to prevent exclusion among children and young people, and to enlarge adult learning opportunities. Special attention is also paid to quality enhancement and impact in education, training and research and to internationalisation. Background to Finland’s success in education builds on the following * Equal opportunities The Finnish education system offers everybody equal opportunities for education, irrespective of domicile, sex, economic situation or linguistic and cultural background. The school network is regionally extensive, and there are no sex-specific school services. Basic education is completely free of charge (including instruction, school materials, school meals, health care, dental care, commuting, special needs education and remedial teaching). * Comprehensiveness of education Basic education encompasses nine years and caters for all those between 7 and 16 years. Schools do not select their students but every student can go to the school of his or her own school district. Students are neither channelled to different schools nor streamed. * Competent teachers On all school levels, teachers are highly qualified and committed. Master’s degree is a requirement, and teacher education includes teaching practice. Teaching profession is very popular in Finland, and hence universities can select the most motivated and talented applicants. Teachers work independently and enjoy full autonomy in the classroom. * Student counselling and special needs education Individual support for the learning and welfare of pupils is well accommodated, and the national core curriculum contains guidelines for the purpose. Special needs education is integrated into regular education as far as possible. Guidance counsellors support upper grade students in their studies and choice of further education. * Encouraging assessment and evaluation The student assessment and evaluation of education and learning outcomes are encouraging and supportive by nature. The aim is to produce information that supports both schools and students to develop. National testing, school ranking lists and inspection systems do not exist. * Significance of education in society Finnish society strongly favours education and the population is highly educated by international standards. Education is appreciated and there is a broad political consensus on education policy. * A flexible system based on empowerment The education system is flexible and the administration based on the principal of “Centralised steering – local implementation”. Steering is conducted through legislation and norms, core curricula, government planning and information steering. Municipalities are responsible for the provision of education and the implementation. Schools and teachers enjoy large autonomy. * Co-operation Interaction and partnerships are built at all levels of activity. There is co-operation for the development of education between various levels of administration, between schools and between other social actors and schools. Education authorities co-operate with teachers’ organisations, pedagogical subject associations and school leadership organisations. This provides strong support for the development. * A student-oriented, active conception of learning The organisation of schoolwork and education is based on a conception of learning that focuses on students’ activity and interaction with the teacher, other students and the learning environment.
