    There are various kinds of intellectual skills, including spatial recognition, pattern recognition, etc. A lot of that goes into chess.ย  When I add my grocery shopping into my budget spreadsheet, I divided my spending into groceries (healthy), snacks, and beverages to keep a check on spending too much on junk.ย  A friend asked if I rounded the numbers from my receipt for each category. A relative answered for me: "No, he just instantly does it to the penny in his head."

    I'm good at math, but I have a sort of tunnel vision: if a new shopping center went up on the main highway I drive, I'll barely notice it unless I'm specifically looking for it.ย  I think I would make a lot fewer blunders if my spatial skills were better and my calculation was weaker!

    My board vision is pretty bad. I miss a lot of long-range moves, especially in subvariations I'm calculating. My psychological aspect is pretty decent though, I'd say. I don't mentally break down when I get a bad position, get in time trouble, get under attack, etc.
