Probably math... ... because of implied logical ability. But it is not enough. I've met some very talented mathematicians but poor chessplayers. There has to be present: 1. interest for chess and 2. psihological stability needed for successfull play.

This is indirect to the theme of the post, however intelligence can also be an advantage. Please note that this is only a suggestion based on articles ive read. There is an equation which i read in a book, which apparantly can predict a persons rating after seriuos study and years of tournament play. Again its based on a persons IQ, and there are always exceptions.

Your IQ x 10 + 1000 = Your likely rating after seriuos study and tournament play.

Of course this is only a prediction, and an IQ, is only a number. And i Believe that a persons intelligence, cannot be defined by a number.

IQ, math, and literature I have to question any article that suggests a correlation between chess rating and IQ. Kasparov would have to have an IQ of over 180. Furthermore, the average person has an IQ of 100, making him potentially an expert.

Chess is conversation of ideas within a math base. The better players concentrate on the ideas and the conversation. Sufficiency in math is essential, but mastery of language arts is the key to mastery of chess.
