As someone else said, chess is for people who like chess. But to become very good at chess, say an IM or GM, probably requires both dedication and a great cognitive prowess.

No.  If chess were just for smart people, would have far less than its almost 20 million members, and I might not even be here.

In the world of chess players, anyone below their ratings are dumb and anyone above "feels" smart. For non-chess players, yes they see us as look smart for seeming to be thinking and solving complex puzzles.
