samurai "mushin" technique for lsat?

Postby gaucholaw » Tue Sep 11, 2012 11:31 pm ... ng-so-much

Interesting article, I have found that during timed pt's I tend to go through the sections automatically, with a very limited amount of active thinking, the result imo is quicker reflexes and more conserved energy. Of course, i think the trick to this strategy is to be able to switch your brain back to conscious mode if you encounter any tricks that aren't standard such as an unusual type 5 lr or lg game.... anyways I'd be curious to know all of your thoughts

Lately, I have been the exact opposite of what I believe a samurai lsat taker might be. During LR sections I start talking to myself saying things like "why" or, "think you idiot." This helps me and I am sad that I cannot do this on the real test.

Maybe I'm old fashioned, but somehow the idea of showing up at the test center and "just letting it happen" doesn't sound like a good recipe for success.

Maybe this technique is geared more toward physical activities like martial arts, sports, driving, watching TV, etc. that really don't require much actual though, unlike the LSAT, wherein thinking seems to be a central focus of what the test is attempting to measure.
