What's the best time to play chess?
Do you make better decisions in the morning or the evening? That might depend on whether you want a quick decision or an accurate one. Researchers looked at the decision-making behavior of 184 users of the Free Internet Chess Server (FICS) to discover at what time of day players made the best decisions. The study published in the journal Cognition showed that whether you're a morning person or not, the most accurate decision-making happens on the early side of the day between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. You can read the findings on the The Association for Psychological Science site HERE.
