Who has the advantage? Some of us are strong in math. Some of us excel in Litterature. What type person has the advantage?

Advantage?... That depends on what the advantage is?...

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.

I enjoy both writing and math, but I am a better writer than mathametician.

Let's see which professions are preferred by the chess al-time-greats:

Philidor - music composer
Staunton - literature researcher
Anderssen and Euwe - math teachers
Morphy and Alekhine - lawyers
Lasker - philosopher and mathematician
Capablanca - diplomat
Botvinnik - electronic engineer
Spassky and Tal - journalists
Karpov - economist
Steinitz, Petrossian, Fischer and Kasparov never had a non-chess education.

I think so... After the wonderful saying of zdrak I think it is better thrown away our books and degrees and run to a non-chess education. :O)))
