About your RESULT:

If you have 10 out of 10: Congratulations.

Allow yourself to feel delighted and proud.

If you have 9 out of 10: Most probably it was just a lapse of concentration. Keep going. Imagine you had 9 out of 10 (= 90%) in your exams: How would you feel about that?

If you have 7 or 8 out of 10: Keep practicing. Analyse what went wrong. Most probably you did not allow yourself to have a really weird connection.

If you have 6 or less: Read the section on examples again and learn to put more oomph into the connections. Give yourself ‘permission’ to create very, very unusual connections.
Also you might read the section: Hints & Tips

However most importantly: Keep practicing.
And you WILL succeed.

‘We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence then is not an act, but a habit.’


Last, but not least, and whatever your result may be: You may find ideas on CREATIVITY (as covered in STUDY SKILLS ) interesting and beneficial. And also they may boost your potential to make strong connections (associations).
