Mind games

I started playing with the Lumosity app. It’s fun, and challenging. I find the most difficult game is a color match. Here’s a screen shot:

The objective is to answer YES when the description in the top box matches the color in the bottom box. The game is time-boxed, and more correct answers means a higher score.

It is pretty easy when the words match ands the color does not, but becomes surprisingly difficult for me when the two don’t match AND the word in the lower box matches its text color.

As one might expect, I found that a combination of light focus and a steady rhythm are conducive to a higher score. The surprise for me, though, was a sense of relaxation following the exercise – the act of focusing became the art of releasing tension.
