Beauty Queens and Battling Knights Risk Taking and Attractiveness in Chess

We explore the relationship between attractiveness and risk taking in chess. We use a large international panel dataset on chess competitions which includes a control for the players’ skill in chess. This data is combined with results from a survey on an online labor market where participants were asked to rate the photos of 626 expert chess players according to attractiveness. Our results suggest that male chess players choose significantly riskier strategies when playing against an attractive female opponent, even though this does not improve their performance. Women’s strategies are not affected by the attractiveness of the opponent.

Susan Greenfield on Storytelling

Once upon a time stories lulled us to sleep as children. They continue to influence how we understand, explain and interact with the world as adults. We shape our memories into coherent narratives. We gossip, tell jokes and dream. We live in a world of stories brought to us in books, plays and film.

 

This sermon by renowned neuroscientist, Susan Greenfield, explores just how crucial stories are to our experience of being human, and why we need fiction to understand fact.
