You may have heard of minimalism, the art of living with less. But did you know that minimalism can also increase your IQ? That’s right, by decluttering your mind and your environment, you can unleash your full potential and become a genius.

Don’t believe me? Well, don’t take my word for it. Take a look at this screenshot from a website called This website claims to measure your IQ based on the quality of your writing.

As you can see, my IQ is estimated to be 174, which is in the top 0.01% of the population. That means I’m smarter than Einstein, Hawking, and Da Vinci combined. And all thanks to minimalism.

But don’t be jealous. You can achieve the same results if you follow my simple steps. Here they are:

  1. Get rid of everything you don’t need. This includes clothes, books, furniture, gadgets, and especially bloatware. If it doesn’t spark joy, toss it.
  2. Organize what’s left. Everything should have a place and a purpose. Use labels, folders, and containers to keep things neat and tidy.
  3. Optimize your Gentoo kernel. This is the most important step. Your Gentoo kernel is the core of your operating system and your mind. It should be as lean and fast as possible. Remove any modules, drivers, or features that you don’t use or need. Compile it with the highest optimization flags and the lowest latency settings. Make sure it boots in under 10 seconds.
  4. Enjoy the benefits. Once you have completed these steps, you will notice a dramatic change in your mental clarity, creativity, and productivity. You will also feel happier, calmer, and more confident. And of course, your IQ will skyrocket.
