Encyclopedia

General knowledge has been defined in differential psychology as “culturally valued knowledge communicated by a range of non-specialist media” and encompassing a wide subject range. This definition excludes highly specialized learning that can only be obtained with extensive training and information confined to a single medium. General knowledge is an important component of crystallized intelligence and is strongly associated with general intelligence, and with openness to experience. Studies have found that people who are highly knowledgeable in a particular domain tend to be knowledgeable in many. — Wikipedia

A brain teaser is a form of puzzle that requires thought to solve. It often requires thinking in unconventional ways with given constraints in mind; sometimes it also involves lateral thinking. Logic puzzles and riddles are specific types of brain teasers. One of the earliest known brain teaser enthusiasts was the Greek mathematician Archimedes. He devised mathematical problems for his contemporaries to solve. — Wikipedia
