One of the more disappointing results to emerge from the field of psychology over the last few decades has been the ironclad and well-replicated finding that there is simply no way to increase intelligence. Literally trillions of dollars have been spent in an effort to find the magic formula that would somehow enable people or groups with lower intelligence to rise above their limitations. The fact that so much money has been spent on this effort with so much hope of finding a way to raise the intelligence of various groups and people is a powerful indicator that the goal of increasing brainpower is largely a quixotic mission.
The field of psychology has, furthermore, generated reams of evidence to this effect. However, there are a couple of very interesting caveats to the rule that intelligence cannot be raised. One interesting finding is that while adults who have lower intelligence due to a deprived environment probably cannot benefit from interventions to raise their IQs, children who are still living in deprived environments can end up with considerably higher intelligence through enriching their environments.
But this is not a case of actually raising intelligence. Rather, it is a case of removing negative environmental factors that are conspiring to lower it. In a similar way, it is also possible to increase cognitive performance by removing factors, environmental or not, that are causing a lull in performance.
Two of the most common factors that can lower cognitive performance are fatigue and poor attention span. These two factors have been successfully combated through the use of such drugs as Ritalin and Adderall. Now, even those who do not meet the criteria for a diagnosis of attention deficit disorder are taking these performance-enhancing drugs to excel at their jobs and school.
But those drugs often come with serious side effects and health risks. That’s why Jeunesse Global, one of the leading health companies in the world, has developed M1nd, a mental health drink that has many of the same effects as Ritalin and Adderall but that’s also 100 percent natural.
M1nd is the best way to gain a competitive edge through superior cognitive performance.
Robert Deignan is the Co-Founder as well as the Chief Executive Officer of ATS Digital Services, which is a digital support company designed to help customers worldwide with various technological concerns – from connectivity issues to overall troubleshooting. Deignan attended Purdue University and graduated with a degree in Organizational Leadership. After a couple of brief stints as a player with the Miami Dolphins in 1997 and the NY Jets in 1998, Deignan co-founded Fanlink, Inc., which was his first entrepreneurial venture.
The idea behind ATS Digital Services, according to Deignan, started while he was working for a different company. Before launching ATS Digital Services, Deignan an his business partners worked for an Anti-Malware Software Company and they used to have tech issues when it came to getting the software installed on the user’s machine. The company had a trial software strategy – so that users who were happy with it were able to purchase it after 15 days of using it free of charge.
By 2009, due to the problem that started from having trouble installing the software on user’s machine, the company put up a phone number on their download page in order to communicate with users and get to the end of the issue. As a result of the conversation with the customers, the company came up with a solution, which was to have their own in-house tech support agents remotely connect to users’ computers in an effort to fix the problems.
The strategy was a success, and it helped increase trust from the users. Additionally, Deignan and his associates realized that they were able to charge a fee for the efficacy of the remote service. By the time he moved on and left the company, him and his associates felt that using remote connection technologies was a great opportunity for them to help users fix their computer issues and a great opportunity for them to start a business. When talking about current exciting trends in the industry, Robert Deignan points to the fact that more and more users are now embracing remote technologies in order to fix their computers.
