About the episode

In this episode hosted by Aditi Kutty, Mark explained that intelligence is somebody who’s adaptable and can adapt to the environment—how adaptable you can be in the environment that you are living in. He also shared some habits to train intelligence or adaptability, including socializing with people, writing notes in actual notes to retain information, and reading books or novels.

He also advised not to read or write on the screen because you can get so much more out of the paper, including the actual feel and smell of the paper. Other practices Dr. Mark employs in his daily life are getting up at 6 a.m., having one glass of water and filling it up again while making coffee, drinking coffee, having a notepad, and having things written, like journaling. These helped him improve his intelligence.
