Is this a self-help question? – jona Jul 21 '14 at 15:08
it would help clarify a little bit if you summarized the first question in addition to linking it. It's not clear what g-factor is, for example. – Josh Jul 21 '14 at 18:54
@jona: I don't think so, because it's about improving cognitive function in already-healthy individuals in general. Self-help questions are more dangerous when about diagnosing/treating this weird thing I have that's been getting worse lately. A positive, general question is less likely to endanger someone's health or generate lawsuits, basically...but there's always room for debate on meta of course. – Nick Stauner Jul 22 '14 at 7:55
@Josh: The g factor is general intelligence; plenty more info on Wikipedia. – Nick Stauner Jul 22 '14 at 7:56
@ChristianHummeluhr - I think this question is more specific than the linked one. Vote for 'Leave Open' here – Christiaan Apr 23 '15 at 0:22
