"Performances" does not equal "actions". A performance consists of actions. "More superior" is like saying "more better". And "minds" are not "mental abilities"; minds would have "mental abilities".

I really like the format of the teaser, though!

Fun and easy! Good one! But like others I found the 'performances'/'actions' thing a little off.

This one was very easy for me, but also really fun I think it would work just as well without the parentheses, because they read funny as full sentences.
