A Hobbit’s Brain Training – Week 1

Week 1 of my Brain Training with Dr. Kawashima, and what an interesting week it has been!

A rather shameful start with the abysmal brain age of 72, I think my results have really improved as the week has gone by. The tests that determine my brain age each day are randomised, some I am quite good at, but there are some where I definitely need to improve!

Here are my brain age test stats for each day of the past week:

The most shocking thing to me is that my short-term memory seems to be the best thing on show here, when I have always considered my memory to be famously bad. Some of the exercises I find very tricky, but I manage to get through them at an apparently impressive rate.

I have found my processing speed to be the most disappointing. Previously I thought this would be something I am better at, but evidently not. My best age in this category so far has been 43! Well, I guess there wouldn’t be much point to brain training if there were no improvements to be made.

With any luck, the next week of results will show off something slightly less underwhelming!


A guy who loves games more than he should, and decided that writing about them might be a good idea.
