Here is the IQ Chart from Levitt's Genius in Chess:
IQ 185 High natural neuro-kinesthetic control; high curiosity drive; anti trivia; in a hurry
IQ 180 New creation
IQ 175 Knows intelligent (and right!)
IQ 165 Formalization; beginnings of self confidence; less hiding
IQ 160 Interest in logic; paranoia; minor creation; recognizes good work; art; music
IQ 150 Trivial formalization
IQ 145 Below this level and often above is everywhere found a slavery to conditioning
Levitt states that the population of IQ distribution is as follows (100 being an average IQ):
16% above 115 2.3% above 130 0.13% above 145 0.003% above 160
Levitt comes up with a equation which relates ELO and IQ score:
ELO ~ (10 x IQ) + 1000
The "~" symbol means "given many years of effort will tend to be equal approximately".
So one day my rating could be 2450!!
Sweet.I like that!!
Mine's 2550. I think the formula is accurate since Kasparov has one of 180. By this formula, he would be 2800.
