Mensa, mensa, mensam, mensae, mensae, mensa.
Right. I was told I should always read the first dozens as to be well informed on the subject.
185 because he is far better then polgar.
Artists like Bach and Beethoven erected churches and temples on the heights. I only wanted... to build dwellings for men in which they might feel happy and at home.
He was probably never tested. He said he did not know in an interview. But here is the interesting thing; he admitted that many times he did not calculate moves, but went by how a certain move "felt". This feeling in reality is the result of the synthesized outcome of thousands of games , subconsciously. This is similar to Koltanowski's description of his talent in blindfold chess. So it may be more interesting to now his EQ (emotional quotient).
Have you read Malcolm Gladwell's book, "Blink"?
I have read Blink. That could be a good explanation to Magnus's mental strength
I wonder though if there is any real correlation in between IQ and chess skills. Meaning that although strong players may have higher IQ, a higher IQ does not automatically guarantee a GM level skill. It all depends on how early a player starts playing (seriously). As you get older, certain undeveloped neural pathway potentials are lost, forever. That is why it is so hard to learn a second language when you are older or say, to learn to ride a unicycle, learn to play an instrument, etc. Even our beloved Judith Polgar was learning the Ruy Lopez when we were happy to sing along with Barney.
Actually there is. Multiple studies have linked chess with IQ and improved brain function. One study even proved that learning chess resulted in an IQ boost for those involved. To say that chess does not require any thought is rather stupid. Regardless of how one learns, multiple areas of the brain are actually strengthened by playing the game. Even though he could possibly use an engine to learn the best moves, I doubt he just blindly follows the engine (since Carlsen calls them blind and lucky). Carlsen has to figure out WHY the engine suggested the moveset and learn from that. On a relatee note... Did you know that chess players actually have high problem solving abilities due to playing chess? A study proved that those who play a lot of chess (and are good at the game) are very good at problem solving.
You cant get smarter just more knowledgeable and less ignorant. How did he do in school
Well that's where you're wrong. There is a plethora of studies that are showing that it is indeed possible to raise IQ (and not just on IQ tests). This is done through the brain repairing and optimizing itself on its own. A game called NeuroNation has been proven to actually repair brain damage through usage in multiple studies. Further, like I already posted, those who play chess receive higher analytical skills from playing the game. It is totally possible to raise IQ and repair your brain. In fact, just taking Omega 3 has been shown to repair all sorts of brain damage, as has drinking green tea. The more you know lol
Afcorse it is not 69 if you got That iq than you cant typ on THE computer
All celebrities should have their IQ tested and post it publicly so that interested people can know(not sarcastic)
kasparov's iQ that had been said around 190 was a lie,the fact the formal iQ test that kasparov took had result 135,and carlsen is too afraid to test his iQ
I'm a nutty conspiracy theorist
Nice to know
There is a Relation between Chess And IQ as it relates by your moves
Magnus Carlson is good at playing a board game way to much.............Are you people truly that self absorbed (no lives), that you even debate this subject and try to relay what you write as being a ( I wish list about your own percieved idea's that if you all try to read each other's? I hope you can identify that you are all saying the same thing.
Anyone does way to much of anything and has some natural ability in that area as well......Guess what?? There is an immense possibilty that they will be better than most others in that chosen field.
It's the same as be great at anything else (anything).
Do you honestly think he is brilliant enough and may come up with a new fuel source and way's to prevent starvation and war????????
I would not have enough time in my life to write down everything he can't even do!
I really hope you have all understood and try not to be clever and write rubbish to prove to yourself how brilliant you and he is, just because you all agree.
