What's Your Chess Personality?

Well, I took this test 5 times over the coarse of one year. According to the computer, I'm a Grinder. "Grinder?" Couldn't they come up with a better name?

Anyway, the description is partially correct in that my knowledge of openings is quite limited.

The trick of this test is that by allowing you and your fantasy to compare yourself to some chess Greats,it momentarily makes you forget you are basically a patzer..Nicely done,kinda like astrology..

I for one do not compair myself to any chess legend. And I certainly have not had the experience of forgetting that I am a patzer-level player. I know my limitations very well (sign of a Grinder, ha-ha). I also expect different results from the test as I grow in the game.

I don't give half of shit what people think of me, I'm gonna compare myself to chess legends all I want. I want to emulate Alekhine!

 

I might fall a wee bit short of those expectations but I'm trying dammit!

Well, start drinking hard liquor by the bottle, because you have a lot of catching up to do!

^ Good attitude. In fact, I desire to read the board like Morphy did before the use of books or opening theory or databases to study.

I'll just make sure to chew carefully before swallowing my steak.

Nice, guys! I'm particulary jealous of all you masterminds and surgeons :p I'm a Barbarian like Hikaru Nakamura

Well, I'm pretty sure Nakamura would eat Alekhine and Lasker alive today so there is that!

Lol, yeah, no shame in being a Barbarian XD Now if I could ACTUALLY play like Nakamura that would be great!

it says im a prodigy like Carlsen.... but winning isnt everything. It is okay if I  lose, as long as I have fun doing it and can learn something.

They never have a category for that, and it's probably the most common type of chess player.
