Data analysis was performed using factor analysis and factor loadings. Results: The three components of planning and organizing, continuous attention and response control were significantly influenced by the variables of executive functions (P< 0/05).

Variables of executive functions and resilience had a direct, positive and significant effect on the success of chess players (P< 0/05).
