There was another study, a few years back, that showed that top-rated tennis players (for example) had an uncanny ability to sense just where the ball was going to be when they needed to hit it back. I doubt this is any kind of "telepathic" ability - just the ability to read their opponent's movements with great accuracy.

It would be interesting to see if soccer players scored high on that one. I would bet on it.

I would argue, though, that since the tests measured
"general executive functions", it would be premature to connect that with "smarter". Most professional basketball players would score high, but few would seem to be smarter than average.
