  1. How can you become smarter if you turn entertainment into work? Scientific literature – you need to read it, but to understand it, you need an education. Well, if I start reading chemists today, what will become of me? I was a two-year student in chemistry, and I will stay. As Paganel said-an ass, but a scientist:)))

    You can't read fiction, you can't learn how to work. She needs to get into it, she needs to give herself time. Some books can be read for years. Reread some of them. To understand fiction, however, you need knowledge of history, languages, interest in the subject of the book, and associations in modern times. And all this can also be done for hours.

    So get your education and read as much as you can. This is quite enough.

  2. It is better to read popular science literature presented in an accessible language. Reading strictly scientific literature to an untrained person makes little sense, it will be very boring and incomprehensible. At best, you'll pick up a lot of terminology without really understanding what it means or when it's used.

    Classics – again, reading Tolstoyevsky's novels by a reader who has no taste or skill for it can only discourage the desire to read. Start with “Belkin's Tales”,” Dubrovsky “and” The Captain's Daughter “by Pushkin,” The Night before Christmas”, “Mirgorod” and “Taras Bulba” – in general, with relatively short, non-boring, witty and action-packed works.

    If you follow these rules, you will probably become smarter.

  3. don't overestimate the classics.
    that is, yes, it is not bad, but this does not mean that there is neutral knowledge.

    In addition, it should be understood that some works have gone down in history as the first work that mentions a particular problem or represents a different genre.

    do you understand? first. not the best, but the first.

    As for the scientific literature, that's how you should think about it. it's not enough just to learn everything like a woodpecker, you also need to link it in your head with some events.

  4. No, you won't. Need �specific �purpose �for �what �you �need to become smarter? To ” take a certain position “or” acquire a profession, or “win the attention” of a particular person. In general, an incentive is needed, otherwise the process will not move forward.

  5. I have a clarifying question: what do you mean by smart (smarter)? I have three approaches to your question:

    1. There is such a thing as emotional intelligence (you will definitely not train it with books, although there are development methods). You can read the article in more detail https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emotional_intelligence if you want even more details, then read the book “Emotional Intelligence. Why It Can Mean More than IQ” by Daniel Goleman.

    2. There is such a thing as IQ. You probably won't be able to train him by reading the classics either (although there are also techniques for training special problem-solving skills). You can read the article in more detail https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Коэффициент_интеллекта.

    3. There are simply well-read people who can know a lot of facts, options for the development of a situation, but the application of this knowledge in practice is unlikely, because usually knowledge of this kind is simply not related to specific life situations (it was not understood by the reader when reading and included in their life experience), therefore a well-read person is simply not able to apply them in life. This is the way most human education programs are built: first there is a theoretical part, and then a practical one (for understanding and linking theory and life). Reading a classic work gives only the theory of some kind of knowledge.
