Video games make you smarter?

“Playing video games, they say, can promote multiple types of intelligence.
Young gamers, for one, have been found to do better in class. In a recently concluded study in Taiwan, students who had played video games showed significant progress in math tests, especially those who were initially weak in the subject.

Aside from marked improvement in logical-mathematical intelligence, researchers from  the National University of Taiwan also found positive growth in the students’ spatial, interpersonal and bodily-kinesthetic intelligence. The last aptitude is one’s ability to control bodily motions and handle objects skillfully.”
