i know chess exercises the brain, but does it really make us smarter? does it help us be more practical, efficient, or tactical in our daily lives? or is it just a brain exercise that doesn't affect anything pertinent to our lives outside of chess. i know we aren't all doctors or psychologists. i was just wondering what other people think of this issue.
