  • I feel the same way. Probably because my brain isn't stimulated on a daily basis like it was when I was in school.

  • If by the level of intelligence you mean iq no. But from the age of 30 and older the brain nerve cells reduce and this makes us remember less but we don't become dumber.
    Note:our brain has 100 billion nerve cells.

  • Intelligence is controversial.
    But what I know through practice and experience you can promote your mind (like a muscle), Learning more information + practicing them + trying new ways of thinking will increase what people call as "smartness".

  • You are just getting smarter and now realize how little you actually know. In the past you were so naive that you didn't realize how it even though you felt sure of yourself.

  • Yes. It is also related to your susceptibility to Alzheimer's disease. The more initial mental functioning, the lower your Alzheimer's risk

  • Yes, IQ can be stimulated and increased by use and visa versa. Also there are many kinds of illnesses causing reduction in IQ, and of course malnutrition is a cause for IQ reduction as well.
