CHESS GRAND MASTERS: INTUITIVE ABILITY TO HIGHLY CREATIVE MOVES

Once the opponent has made his move, 3 out of 4 times a grandmaster's eyes start at the BEST move which he examines. Then he studies/ evaluates other moves to return (3 out of 4 times) to the initial move he considered first. The grandmaster is not distinguished from the expert by the number of moves he "looks ahead" (both the grandmaster and the expert look ahead only two or three moves, with a maximum of five).


CHESS GRANDMASTERS: THEIR GREAT ABILITY TO RECOGNIZE PATTERNS

Grand-masters can look at the twentieth position in a grand-masters chess match for five seconds and then reproduce it almost perfectly, with approximately 90% accuracy. Experts and novices cannot do that. No one can do it for pieces randomly placed on the board.

Grand Masters του σκακιού : Διαισθητική ικανότητα για πολύ δημιουργικές κινήσεις Μόλις ο αντίπαλος έχει κάνει την κίνησή του, σε 3 από 4 φορές τα μάτια του grand master  ξεκινούν από την κάλλιστη  κίνηση  που αρχίζει να εξετάζει. Στην συνέχεια σπουδάζει/αξιολογεί άλλες κινήσεις για να επιστρέψει (3 από 4 φορές) στην αρχική κίνηση που είχε εξετάσει πρώτα. Ο Grand master δεν διαφέρει από τον εμπειρογνώμονα στον αριθμό των κινήσεων που «βλέπει μπροστά» (τόσο ο grand master όσο και ο εμπειρογνώμονας «βλέπουν μπροστά» μόνο δύο ή τρείς κινήσεις με ανώτατο όριο πέντε), στη νοημοσύνη, ή την φωτογραφική μνήμη.


Grand Masters του σκακιού: Τεράστια ικανότητα να αναγνωρίζουν μοτίβα Σκάκι Grand masters μπορούν να κοιτάξουν την εικοστή θέση σε μια παρτίδα σκακιού (παρτίδας σε επίπεδο grand masters) για πέντε δευτερόλεπτα και στη συνέχεια να την αναπαράγουν σχεδόν τέλεια (με περίπου 90% ακρίβεια). Εμπειρογνώμονες και αρχάριοι δεν μπορούν να την αναπαραγάγουν. Κανείς δεν μπορεί να το κάνει με κομμάτια  που έχουν τοποθετηθεί τυχαία στο σκάκι.
