If you want to be smarter, all you need to do is see yourself as Albert Einstein, according to a recent study.
In a recent study, people pictured themselves as the famed physicist with some help from virtual reality. Wearing a body suit and VR headset, the test subjects saw themselves as Albert Einstein, and it turned out that they did better on cognitive tests because of it. Simply seeing themselves as someone smarter actually made them smarter.
These people were then mocked by people who saw themselves as jocks.
