Its not an excuse for me cause I am 18 years old and I am in the learning process of this sport for 5 to 6 months and neither I have played so many games.So I have not failed yet to need excuse.What I support is what I believe.And its simple logic really.Dont you believe that brain is a muscle and if you use him you imrove him.Science believes it...who are you to discard that?
Of course you'll improve, but most people won't make GM, no matter what.
I can't understand why you believe that...If we could check the IQ from every single of GM's...
Something else that I heard and dont know if its true is that by playing chess you dont use so much of your brain and by that you dont improve your iq.
I disagree. By playing chess you train a lot of skills.
I disagree, most of the skills are inborn. You can push yourself too much or have too little motivation.It is obvious that those skills were not polished
Yes, but I wrote that you can train skills, not that you can become a master in these skills. Playing chess trains memory (memorizing a lot of matches, remember a lot of openings' variations, etc...), problem solving (solving chess puzzles, find the best move in a match) , concentration (it's highly recommended for ADHDs), spacial/visual intelligence (moving pieces in your mind), creativity.
It's not high IQ in general. People have different talents in different things. I know a guy whose dumber than me, but he's a better musician than I would ever be.
i like it,i like it
that is pretty contradicting. On the one hand you try to be diplomatic and say no you cant say its high in general but then you totally rude saying you can judge someone elses intelligence.
I would assume that iq isnt the measure of intelligence anyway.
Well i would still assume its safe to say when someone excells in something that involves the brain he is pretty smart.
I'm not trying to be diplomatic. I've known people who are great at one thing, and not worth a crap in others. Perhaps Magnus is great at chess, but couldn't paint a picture to save his life.
Well i dont know about Magnus, but why would someone need to paint a picture to save his life? Also in chess you have to look deeper and beyond the obvious, i think that is a skill you can use in many cases. In Business and on stock market.
Anyway i definetly believe in contradiction to most people, chess makes you smarter in Business and in many other endeavours.
Have a well rounded study plan.Practice tactics and basic endgame.Then go over your games especially the losses .
Go to sleep and never wake up, works for me everytime :D
So...are you a ghost then?
Yes, I am a ghost
I am following all advice on chess.com, and I am a diamond member, and doing tactics daily. I am also improving slowly, but sure. But what can i do to improve faster? I was around 1100, 5months ago, and now i am around 1300.
