Default chess rating vs. IQ - why geniuses lose to idiots

Den onsdag 30 december 1998 kl. 09:00:00 UTC+1 skrev Greg Kennedy:
Here is a problem for the people who claim chess ratings
correspond to IQ's: Why is it that "geniuses" like Nimzovich
occasionally lose to an "idiot"? What is the probability of
this occurring in a tournament? Of the "genius" jumping up
onto a table and querying his awful predicament? And why is
it that I continue to lose to "idiots" and "morons", as well
as the occasional pea brain though my rating far exceeds
theirs, just as your theory predicts? Could it be that
disdain for an opponent's IQ has an adverse effect on the
strength of the superior player when they meet OTB, in
effect canceling out part of his or her advantage? And how
do you account for the "geniuses" throughout history who
played mediocre chess? Perhaps far too much is made of the
correlation between chess ratings and IQ.

Its very simple.
Chessplayers are in general idiot-embryos and the more chess they study the more idiotlike they became. This type of stereotype game affects brainsypaps in a negative way if played too much. But also the brain will get programmed for just the gametype. It will start to work by itself with the decisions.
Kasparov got angry when hes IQ was measured. Guess why. Good in chess - NO relation with IQ at all. A monkey can have 2000 +. Sad humans that played chess whole life, every day, can nothing else, and never reach more than 1500. Its idiots.
