    He was described as having a "psychological" style of play, which confused his opponents. But in fact he was simply ahead of them in his understanding of the dynamics of chess. Lasker understood how to create counterplay, how to change the theater of battle when one part of the board was weak, and how to transform advantages. His defensive and endgame technique were the key to his great results.

    Assassins are all about controlled aggression. They tend to play sharp openings (especially 1.e4 as white) and look to attack the opponent's King. But their attacks are not wild or careless - everything is still governed by the objective demands of the position and exact calculation. Assassins tend to play "against the pieces" rather than "against the opponent". They won't alter their own play to try to take advantage of the opponent's psychology.
    Robert J Fischer is an Assassin

    Bobby Fischer (1943-2008), the eleventh World Chess Champion, was one deadly Assassin. One of the most dominant players of all time, the American became a grandmaster at the age of only fifteen and eventually took the world championship in a 1972 match with Boris Spassky. Fischer's perfect composure, along with accurate calculation and great will to win, caused his opponents to crumble. Fischer's opening repertoire was very limited, but also very sharp and very well prepared. All in all, Bobby Fischer was a chess machine long before actual chess engines could play at anywhere near that level.



    The same as Aylen but with more pronounced attacking side.

    I wish I knew more people's types so I could hypothesise about what the type-relatedness is here.

    Also, apologies for the very small photo. If you click on it it grows to be a regular size.

    n i'd rather dichotomize as: attacking/positional --- extro/intro (openings/attacks/assertion)
    aggressive/solid --- irrational/rational (predictability/consistency of moves, "attacking is the right way, risk avoidant")

    If that is true my "E" turns to "L" when I play chess. I was taught to play by an ILI.

    slightly more positional
    slightly more solid
    slightly more calculating
    very calm

    The Professional. Considering I was in the middle for 75% of the dichotomies, I can't say this means much to me.

    If anything, I guess your personality has an influence on your way of playing chess. The pseudo-typings I have done may be right after all

    I think Kasparov is LSE.

    His conversation with Peter Thiel (ILI) reminds me of a lot of the conversations I've had with LSEs. Plus it just kind of looks like supervision.
