(Apparently) I came out of the same mould they used for Mikhail Botvinnik - professional. Thatâ€™ll be the day!

I answered this quiz honestly after an evening at the World's only indoor wassail and my chess personality is apparently genius. I think I'll settle for that.
Professional, but apparently the French Winawer would be a suitable opening - guilty as charged, but not the most professional of openings!
Beats all the old Myers-Briggs stuff, anyway.

I'm a prodigy apparently which may be a polite way of saying I was good 30 years ago
"play aggressively and fight for the win from the beginning to the end" does not seem an accurate description of my recent chess career

Must admit to having got to the question about the Shevsinikov, wanted to answer 'yes', got annoyed and given up.
(Many of the questions aren't phrased quite right to 'force' an A/B choice.).
So I'm clearly a pedant

It seems I am a "Surgeon" that must be down to all the time I spent In Hospitals! It had my openings spot on, so I have to give it some credence, "Nurse pass me my scalpel"
Speaking of scalpels was it Bobby Fischer who said "it is not a knight to f5 but a Knife to f5"?

I'm not mad I tell you. A trifle insane perhaps. But not mad.

"Mastermind" with a strong preference for attacking rather than positional play. For those who know me, stop laughing, please.

Mine was "Natural", but I think I fudged some of the questions so the result may not be entirely accurate...

"Prodigy" apparently, but I agree that with some of the questions I didn't really agree with either answer. That may be the idea of course!
