Does the end of the day ever feel like a game of drawn out chess pieces?

    Do you think of things before they happen; or do you simply react to everyone's move?

      As a rationalist, I do not emotionally involve myself with arguments or discussions. I keep a level head and logically reason my way out. I keep in control, I don't play my opponent's game.

      Great thread post, by the way !

    To be several moves ahead is difficult in chess. In real life, its nearly impossible. Thats how I see it anyway. But I do like chess metaphors!

      It isn't about being able to see many moves ahead, Martin. I admire your interest in chess but that's a misconception. It does have a little to do with anticipation, implying that, you must be able to see a bit in advance. However, as an Intermediate Player, I can say, in chess, as well as in life, it isn't about mostly about anticipation. It's about standing your ground and being able to move forward while keeping the same amount of strength to overwhelm your opponent and keeping track of your vulnerabilities (defenses).

      I hope this helps!
