Do we have any <historians> here besides the selfstyled?|
<A historian is a person who studies and writes about the past and is regarded as an authority on it. Historians are concerned with the continuous, methodical narrative and research of past events as relating to the human race; as well as the study of all history in time. If the individual is concerned with events preceding written history, the individual is a historian of prehistory. Although "historian" can be used to describe amateur and professional historians alike, it is reserved more recently for those who have acquired graduate degrees in the discipline. Some historians, though, are recognized by publications or training and experience. "Historian" became a professional occupation in the late nineteenth century as research universities were emerging in Germany and elsewhere.>

This is so far beyond clueless that it wraps around into something like genius.
Anyway, here you go, Conrad93. See ughaibu's post from 2004 in the link. Unfortunately it's a paraphrase.
Botvinnik vs W Winter, 1936

Yeah it's pretty damn funny.

He was good, but he wasn't THAT good.

Have you anything positive to contribute? Ever?
Claiming you are 'here to learn', you run from one page to another, using such descriptions as mediocre for one strong player after another. What the *$#@ have <you> ever done, except demonstrate your mastery of trolling? Get off on the attention, do you?
|Jun-02-14|| ||moronovich: Conrad is just a simpleton who seems to use other people to get a way from all his shortcommings.It is all smokescreen and I can only advice you to use the ignorebutton as I did long ago.|
But there are some fine therapists out there.
|Jun-05-14|| ||Conrad93: Chess therapists?|
|Jun-22-14|| ||MountainMatt: Player of the day? Player of the (19th) century!|
|Jun-22-14|| ||Jambow: <MountainMatt> I came to write the same.|
|Jun-22-14|| ||morfishine: It should be taken into account that <Conrad93> suffers from a 'Cluster B' personality disorder characterized by an excessive need or craving for attention. This disorder is primarily histrionic, which sets it apart from the pure narcissist, paranoid and/or anti-social groups. |
Promising treatment is attributed to noted Psychotherapist Dr. Luke Atme who has developed a systematic plan involving at least 3 therapists, semi-structured
and unstructured interviews, goal-setting and simple yet precise work.
The idea behind having at least 3 therapists working with the patient is to avoid any inconsistencies that may arise during the interview process. For example, if the patient were treated by one therapist, a single slip in the logical flow of the conversation (over time) would degrade any trust built up between the patient and the therapist. Multiple therapists would dilute this possibility while serving to
temporarily satisfy the patient's need for attention.
The interviews serve a critical role in breaking down social barriers, establishing
trust and identifying specific interests and/or strengths within the patient.
Goal-setting is a delicate procedure that is mutually addressed by both patient
and doctor. The idea is to avoid mandates in the evolution of the goals. Ideally,
the resulting goals will originate solely from the patient; but Dr. Luke Atme stresses that goals forwarded by the doctor are an important element since these serve to attract attention from the patient to the Doctor, which he describes
as a sort of 'reverse therapy' subsidiary to the overall treatment.
Once the goal or goals are set, its time for old-fashioned hard work. The underlying purpose of the goal is self-improvement with a subsequent increase in confidence within the patient. Dr. Atme explains that this process of goal-setting,
hard work and resulting boost in confidence serve to occupy the patients time in
self-improvement, thus decreasing or eliminating the need for attention. Hence,
an increase in self-confidence eliminates the need for attention.

|Jun-22-14|| ||Agent Bouncy: What??!? Did Conrad die?|
|Jun-22-14|| ||gars: More than once Bobby Fischer stated that Morphy and Steinitz were the greatest chessplayers os all time. And a praise from Fischer is very important, isn't it? June 22nd must be christened Morphy's Day to honor the supreme master of us all.|
