IQ has nothing to do with Chess ! I`ve ever defeated in chess by a homeless man ( who earn his living by sell cigarette in the street ), & he must be failed in all kind of IQ test because he never go to school nor take any educational program which mean he can`t read ! Chess is simply a game of analyzing moves, I think.
& that 'IQ' stuff is a new standard system ( although not accepted YET by most of people ) created by modern educated peoples, the same way they create all modern educational title, like Bachelor or Master degree. All of those things actually the development of how create new "economy" or say how to earn money in education system while cooperate with other system.
This "economy" matter actually could be apply to the all kind of sport system include chess world. The reason why chess star not as popular as Footbal Star or Basketball star, is because their system have grow much, like the promotion, people acceptance & media coverage in football & basketball world. People acceptance toward chess actually increase thanks to www, so chess enthusiast can interact with other chess player simply by connect via net,but chess has not increase much in promotional & medias.
You have got to be joking... " I`ve ever defeated in chess by a homeless man ( who earn his living by sell cigarette in the street ), & he must be failed in all kind of IQ test because he never go to school nor take any educational program"
It was proved long ago that a finite number pattern can have an infinite numbers of reasoned next number.its obviously 22 because it's the only other number that also comes with rice at my local takeaway.
? Can you restate that? I don't understand "can have an infinite numbers of reasoned next number"
I think he is saying that even with a finate number of patterns and an infinite number of reasoned next numbers, there are only 2 items that come with rice at the local takeaway.
I think Einstein covered all this right after E=MC2.
Well, English is obviously not his first language, so you don't need to be a d*ck about it.
I have an IQ of 164 and I don't consider myself to be the best chess player around (At least, not yet), besides we have already been over this whole topic in detail in an other forum, and agreed that there is a link between having a High IQ and being good at Chess... However, it doesn't mean anything if you don't practice with a burning desire in your heart to get better and win. Also, everyone has been trying to answer question #5, however let me question that question, and ask if you didn't mean 21 instead of 22? If it was supposed to be 21, then the answer is 34, because each number in the sequence is the result of adding the two numbers before it... 3+5=8, 5+8=13 and 13+21=34...
#5 is the fibonacci sequence. I also doubt you have an IQ of 162.
Q Test Solutions 1. Whale. The whale is the only mammal.2. 90, 93. The numbers alternately increase by 3 or double.3. Hermes. All the others are planets in the solar system.4. Optics. Acoustics is the science of sound, optics of light.5. 39. Each subsequent number is obtained by doubling the previous one and then subtracting a number which increments by one each time (e.g. 3x2 - 1 = 5; 5x2 - 2 = 8; 8x2 - 3 = 13 etc.)6. Aristotle. All the others are composers.7. Rio de Janeiro. Rio is in the southern hemisphere. All the others are in the northern hemisphere.8. 197. All the other numbers are perfect squares.9. J. If the letters are replaced by their position in the alphabet, we get the sequence 2, 5, 10, 17, 26. Each of these numbers is a square number plus one.10. 22. The upper row numbers increment by 2, 3 and 4. The lower row by 3, 5 and 7. Now check your score against the following chart: Correct answers 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10IQ rating 82 90 98 106 115 124 133 142 151 160 Scoring 100 is average, while 130 is in the genius range (see chapter 1 of the book). Kasparov took a similar test and registered an IQ of 135.
I got 6 right so my IQ on this test is 124 :)
Isn't IQ calculated by dividing your mental age by your physical age and multiplying that by 100? How do you calculate IQ without an age?
does a blowfish (puffer) know how weak he really is? is it good to tell him?
a wolf would be smart to wear a sheep skin - a sheep would be smart to wear a wolf skin. so i think - all the people who tell others that they have an IQ of about 200 LOL, are the sheeps the puffers the blowfish, because it makes no sense to tell others - its not intelligent to do so.
