Why do you think that is? Because there is a direct link to high IQ & being a GM at chess. It's don't matter how many people try to down play it, try & brush it off, that will not change any facts. 

You don't seem to know the definition of the word "fact".

The fact is fellow you most likely will never be GM because you are not bright enough. So lay ya little nut down


Ah well yes, there we have it right away. The use of "fact" here is a hyperbolic device in rhetoric. Perhaps accusing another of not knowing the definition of fact was a failure to recognise normal, rhetorical devices. Nevertheless, he's not going to like the natural response. I've done it often enough and I try to avoid it, these days.

What does correct mean? All the English teachers at the grammar schools I attended would have told us that "correct" is an absolute. Something cannot be more correct or less correct because it's either correct or incorrect. It would have been impossible to argue against them because that's what they were taught and that's what they considered correct.

Perhaps it involves taking a statement as a single entity. Or taking a situation as a single or composite group or set of details, all of which must be correct for the situation itself, whatever it is, to be regarded as correct. And yet it seems that we can differ from that, quite sensibly. Regarding the set of supposed facts as a set of issues, each of which are capable of being incorrect and so the composite becomes different; it becomes able to be either more correct or less correct. This procedure of analysis is, perhaps, a form of Deconstruction, promoted by continental philosophers such as Derrida. I explicitly avoided Modern, Continental Philosophy during my philosophy degree, which I took in the early 90s, perhaps because I thought it simplistic and yet overly emphasised and made to look more complex than it is, probably for self-promotional reasons. Yet it's useful and important. It's just that French people like Derrida don't get accolades for inventing it. It's always been around.

According to an Internet definition: "a squint, also called strabismus, is where the eyes point in different directions". Here in Lancashire, England, we could say "he skens like a basket of whelks" and we would be understood perfectly. Is one form correct and the other not? Is one more correct than the other?

A fact is a statement which Is considered to be correct and which is fully supported by evidence. Note that "correct" is part of the "definition of fact", or it may be. Also note that the idea of "correct" is perhaps variable, as has been discussed. All things said and done, it may seem a little parsimonious to deny the correctness and validity of a normal, rhetorical use of the word "fact".

You like to beat around the bush too much lol. Just come back down to earth fellow & view things in more simpler terms... You just said it yourself...you think it's unlikely that a GM wouldn't have a high IQ.

So with that statement you are agreeing with me man. Like I been saying all along High IQ intelligence & being a GM go hand in hand. 

 I would say an IQ over 120 would be in the high category. Think that must be higher than average IQ. But I'm sure if tested most GM would score at least 130.. Much brighter than average joe.

All in my opinion, so don't get having ya lips too much

 

I wasn't talking to you, because although you have the right idea about chess and IQ, you don't appear too bright, do you. You seem pretty stupid.

Yes I have the right idea about chess & IQ, you don't.  So although you can read & write better than me, as you kept pointing out. Who is the stupid one.?  I get it & you don't. It's got nothing to do with trolling. Trolling for trying to help you understand something you don't lol. How can that be trolling.. My God!!. 

You might hate me but the truth is, if you collapsed in front of me I would be straight down giving ya the kiss of life. bullet

Peace & love

You don't seem to understand what we're saying and everybody's wrong whether you agree with them or not. You seem to have been copying what I've written and then claiming that I'm copying you. You haven't added anything new and you seem to have it in for everyone, so I got fed up. I'm sure you're okay as a person but it doesn't come across. Also, you seem familiar to me but I don't think we've talked for years. You seem to like 1950s American slang but you have a British flag. Where are you from?

I was born & have lived in UK my whole life but my mothers father was American that lived in North Carolina, he was a fighter jet pilot that moved to the UK for a while when he was with my nan. When they split he moved back to USA.... I have never fitted in over here, never felt at home. I prefer yanks cause overall they seem far more intelligent to me happy.png Anyways nice to meet ya, see ya around on here. Take care
