    A friend of mine quitted chess after he has been crushed by a young woman in 15 moves. My friend had a 2010 rating (FIDE) at that time.

    Sounds like a bloated ego to me. How dare this inferior creature beat me at chess!

    Right on, Conflag!  (Nicely observed -- you sound like a man who understands the frailties of, let's just say "some" members of his own gender. )

    Surely that idiot would have had to have been aware that there are women rated higher than that. I've seen that same attitude amoung male  math, and science majors too. Things like that disprove the stereotype than men think logically, and women think emotionally. Having a need to feel superior to some other group in order to feel good about yourself.

    MIL (that's me) replies:

    If I may speak for women, we have our own version of that "superiority" thing, which I think is Terribly clever:  We often Think about how superior we are to men, but we Don't say it out loud To men, so we feel Extra  Superior about our superior generosity and kindness in keeping that "secret" from men, who would be Crushed if they knew!  (Boy, are we "superior," or what?! .. tee-hee, giggle, chortle .. Wink!)

    Never heard of that, but I don't think either gender thinks logically while the other thinks emotionally. It's been disproven too many times.
