What can you do to increase your IQ and perceived smartness?

How we see ourselves, and how others see us, are not just based on rational facts. And the way we act, the things we do, are based on our subconscious beliefs about ourselves, our environment, and our values. We are irrational beings, and we act accordingly.

However, we can improve ourselves and the way we think about ourselves. One of those ways is to actually make conscious decisions about what we want to improve, and then start working at it. It will build new and successful experiences, which will present a new unconscious narrative in ourselves.
