Here is the IQ Chartfrom Levitt's Genius in Chess:IQ 185 High natural neuro-kinesthetic control; high curiosity drive; anti trivia; in a hurry

IQ 180 New creation

IQ 175 Knows intelligent (and right!)

IQ 165 Formalization; beginnings of self confidence; less hiding

IQ 160 Interest in logic; paranoia; minor creation; recognizes good work; art; music

IQ 150 Trivial formalization

IQ 145 Below this level and often above is everywhere found a slavery to conditioning

Levitt states that the population of IQ distribution is as follows (100 being an average IQ):

16% above 115

2.3% above 130

0.13% above 145

0.003% above 160

Levitt comes up with a equation which relates ELO and IQ score:

ELO ~ (10 x IQ) + 1000The "~" symbol means "given many years of effort will tend to be equal approximately".

I'm 145.

So one day my rating could be 2450!!

Sweet.I like that!!

Mine's 2550. I think the formula is accurate since Kasparov has one of 180. By this formula, he would be 2800.
