IQ does not include forms of intelligences such as linguistic intelligence, musical intelligence, spacial inteligence, etc. Also, people from different cultures are at a disadvantage.
I'll get a link for you sometime.
And I'm not saying this because I'm below average or something; I'm actually above average in my age group.
i did not claim it a panacea only that is it a VERY reliable source on a persons capacity to learnand it is see it is easier to learn to play violin when one is more intelligent and there are even such things as artistic prodigies (as it is not just confined to math and science)
low enough to spend so much time on chess
Because IQ isn't that important to success in chess, I think IQ wouldn't be very restrictive. Probably above 70 or 80 to be a GM, but even then maybe you could find exceptions.
Certainly there is some degree of correlation, I agree with that. I'm simply saying that I would not use an IQ result to judge another person's capabilities, unless we're talking about a 30 or more difference in percentile.
Another part of the issue is that intelligence doesn't have a real set definition. There's the dictionary definition, but it doesn't really encompass what most people percieve as intelligence.
I'm off to bed now, but I'll talk more about this with you soon.
