I am really curious about the correlation between IQ and Go ranks. I tried once to find the IQs of strong players, but failed because many declined to reveal.
I see here two other threads, one about IQ, and one poll about time to improve in rank, but no results posted yet. So if you are not shy, please answer to two questions.
1 What is your IQ
2 How many years of relative active play or study you used to reach a certain rank?
The rank obviously should be the one where you stopped growing, or the actual one if you are still progressing. The age may be important too, but I want to keep the things simple.
Please answer on questions, do not elaborate, and transform this in a regular thread.
(If you fingers are ithchy though, you can elaborate in this paralel thread, created for those who were itchy before you. How IQ does or doesn't correlate to Go skill)
My answers first, as example.
1 Around 130, I forgot the actual figure since I did not took a test in decades.
2 4 years of regular play in club and competitions to 4k. (no real study, just read three books)
You may have played a year, reached 10k, took many years pause and then in other year reached shodan, so is two years to shodan. Try to considerate only the years of actual play and improvement.
And I talk about general IQ. I know that there is EQ and different types of tests for different aspects of intelligence, but if you got tested for something like this I assume you already know about the general thing.
And since it seems that few bothered to find such test, here is one free. You can skip the survey from the end, just scroll for the button to finish the test.
