Default A humble enquiry

Hello,

Hope all's well with the community. I am fairly new to Logic puzzles (infact fairly new to all sorts of logic puzzles/quizzes.. even advanced arithmetic). So my question is does everyone start out slow and eventually get better with deliberate practice? That is all.

The short answer is yes.
The longer answer is that speed and improvement are relative, so some people probably start out pretty fast and some pretty slow, and improvement due to practice will vary. One person might start out really slow and improve quickly, others may start out fast and not get much faster for a while. The slow starters might eventually surpass the quick starters; people will plateau at different levels, and even then might have a 'eureka' moment and suddenly get a lot better (like when you figure out a new way to understand a certain type of clue).
Also, I don't think anyone can say for certain that everyone gets better as they do more, although that would be expected in the vast majority of cases (assuming they don't get one of the GPS puzzles early on and just quit). It's pretty safe to assume that you yourself will get better if you continue practicing.

I asked a very similar question in this thread, and got a lot of good responses.

I'm still not very fast at solving them, but I end up in the average column a lot now. I like doing the 4x5 challenging puzzles most often.
