Is there a "chess player" personality? [POLL]

    Notice how the MBTI has something nice to say about all the different combinations of their matrix. That smells like feel good pop psychology to me.

    But then I would say that...INTJ/F ........ always sceptical

    Might as well turn this thread into a 3-word story.

    It would (indeed) be rather more interesting.  Duh ??

    Don't stop there. There has been formal research on the topic for at least 29 years! (http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1207/s15327752jpa4903_13?journalCode=hjpa20)

    Check out the results: ...

    Compiling the numbers is utterly boring (a Sensor pastime).  Hence this thread has gone to bed.  No rhyme intended.

    Now explain why you were begging the question in Post #1, @Reedy, since you already knew the answer you were seeking.  Duh ??

    The short answer is because it's fun and new people might find it interesting.

    The longer answer is that people who post on this forum are obviously not a representative sample of chess players in general, and I didn't ask for other relevant information like rating. From that, you might have deduced (correctly) that the point of this thread is not to do basic research on chess player psychology, but rather to pass time talking about something chess-related.

    @zborg, unless you're planning on being inconsistent or lazy, I expect that you'll post similar concerns on other threads like "HURT HEAL openings 2", in which some misguided amateurs are attempting to do basic research on chess openings by crowdsourcing their opinions on various lines...

    Alternatively, if it's the psychology-oriented threads that really bust your buttons, you might like to inform the participants in "chess intuition, how its work?" that there is already a rich body of scholarly research on chess intuition, for example, "An Active Symbols Theory of Chess Intuition" by Linhares (2005) and the classic work, "Perception in Chess" by Chase and Simon (1973).

    Finally, another alternative is that you could realize that this is a public forum on a board game site, where people come precisely to waste time talking about nothing in particular.

    I recommend the last one.

    I recommend you learn to write concisely, and stop hiding behind your statistics degree, @Reading-and-writing-poorly.  Nuff said?
