The delay in the Hexatron test most deffinitly helps, I've found that to be my main stumbling block with the other tests I've taken. I think, like
you said, the delay allows you to distract yoruself somehow. I've found the most helpful aspect of the delay was the need to click the button to
generate the next card. I used a combination of breathing, looking at the button, and listening intently to the click of the mouse to distract my
I also found a few other tests last night, one which is based off the California State lottery and uses 6 randomly generated numbers with a list to
choose from. I tried the same technique and eventually had marginal improvement when I began listening for the numbers in the back of my head. I
started with getting absolutely nothing right and moved on to getting one right and then sometimes two. I didn't have enough time yesterday to play
with it as much as I like. There were also a few PK tests I found, one in which you had to force one of two photos to appear on a screen that started
with both scrambled together. I did it about ten times and ended up with 2 or 3 more wins than losses. However, I don't think a PK test would work
if the objects are simulated.
I forgot to book mark that page but if you'd like to see the tests I can find it for you.
I'm looking foward to taking your PSI test, perhaps a good distraction would some form of white noise, or a repeating sequence of noises. I suppose
you wouldn't want it to be too distracting, perhaps yuou can include an option to turn the distractions off so the user could see if there is a
differnce between the two.
