    Oh please, a lot of people like chess.

    Occam's Razor. INTJ.
    A search for truth is a search for a greedy perspective.

    Nah, that's not truth. That's just your bullshit ideas of truth. Truth is always inclusive. If it's not inclusive, then toughen it up and try harder.

    This guy is clearly a Mastermind INTJ, but if he isn't, he's an IxTP, based on the flow of the comments presented thus far.

    I neither know nor care. He had unreasonably delicious hands, though.



    He was probably a massive prick, but I bet the man got more box than the USPS.

    INTJs are calculating with their sometimes incredible foresight. In this respect I would say Mr Fischer was was an INTJ. Memorizing hundreds of different scenarios could have just been a confidence booster.

    According to Mr. Fischer, nothing in chess is more important than a good memory.

    Well I have played chess since i was a young kid and one thing I can tell you from experience is that even when I played at around 1700, it was difficult to remember anything past 10 moves from opening. With every move that is made in chess thousands upon thousands of differnt variables are created. To me chess is way more than memory. I personally think it is much more about improvising and planning ahead. In order to become really good you have to have a mind for the abstract and I think any decent chess player would agree. Don't get me wrong, i think that memory does play a valuable role in chess, I just disagree that it is the most important element.

    Fischer was a most interesting mind, he would flip through chess books like nothing and visually play though an entire game in a matter of seconds. I don't think this is as much about memory recall as it is connecting the dots if you guys know where I am going with this. For this reason I am not disregarding INTP as a possibility. IDk, it's really tough to say though..

    I found two quotes that could shed a bit more light on him...

    TL;DR quote:



    But the thing that was great about Capablanca was that he really spoke his mind, he said what he believed was true, he said what he felt. He wanted to change the rules [of chess] already, back in the twenties, because he said chess was getting played out. He was right. Now chess is completely dead. It is all just memorisation and prearrangement. It’s a terrible game now. Very uncreative.
    True, he said memorisation was a large part of it, but he certainly didn't think it was the be and end all of the game.

The only problem i have is that he did memorise a lot of reading material for moves when he was young, which seems more like Si. But I have no reason to believe why an INTJ couldn't do the same, especially if they enjoy the activity.
    I wish I could remember the exact definition I read one time. It said that Ni used past, present, & future to correlate patterns. It can take a past piece of information along with the way something looks currently, and predict the future. I don't see why Si would be the only function good for memorizing for this matter. They are more into protecting their past experiences. I would even go as far as to say I would presume someone with Ni may come to remember something they didn't realize they previously did when a "aha!" moment happens.

    I think Ni would be ideal for playing chess. Te would be great for strategizing.
