IQ and Chess: The Real Relationship

  • 3 months ago · Quote · #141


    One big problem with this article: the levitt equation. I love the idea, but he does not specify which test is used to measure IQ, this important as different IQ tests have different scales, 140 on one test may equate to 120 on another, what would be a better equation is to base the final (potential) chess rating on a persons IQ percentile (on any accurate, well founded test), for example to test at the 96th percentile (top 4%) might equate to an ELO of 2300.
