That seems to answer your question (which is not answered by the first article):

Do "chess players have an higher IQ than others people because they play chess" or do "people who have an higher IQs more likely to play chess" ? Smile


It seems "people who have an higher IQs are more likely play chess". From the first article the difference seems substantial, in standard terms it amounts 7.5 IQ points (with 100 average and 15 standard deviation).

From my own experience, strong casual players of chess are pretty limited Smile. I have no experience with GMs, but only rarely a really intellectual, broad, cultured person like Taimanov emerged.
