Does Aikido make you smarter?

Aikido can make you smarter, but only under certain conditions:

Your teacher must have a black belt in at least 7 different martial arts, preferably several that you've never heard of.

He must be ranked 10 dan, the founder of his own system and insist on being referred to as Soke

He must be a master of no touch throws, and have ki extension that could knock you down at a distance of 15 feet if only you were capable of withstanding such an advanced technique.

He should have a number of photos of himself posing with a katana. Extra points if it has the highlander grip.

What's that? You think that these are signs that you should run away and find another Sensei?

Hey, you're getting smarter already!

Re: Does Aikido make you smarter?

This question sounds like a golden opportunity for a PhD thesis in about four different fields. Listening to Mozart gives a temporary effect, why not Aikido?
I don't feel any smarter but I do feel like a better person, not superior to others, just a refined version of my original self. Please, no Microsoft/DOS version jokes.
