From what I see StarCraft II can develop your Multi-Tasking ability, thinking speed, Improvisational skills, strategy play, logic, and ability to play under stress.

"It's just a game, why so serious?"

*i remember when SC1 i learn how to micro macro and most of people i fight in LAN-Game told me i am cheat or hack.

Multi-Tasking ability : Good , im can even do 2 or 3 games at once , chat and lurking forums at same times
thinking speed : fail , im locked in same rountine reaction
Improvisational skills : none, stated above
strategy play : depend my team , im fail one on one
logic : lrn2play and level up from beginners to average user in less than 1 hour... sadly never can be pro...
ability to play under stress : ... what stress ? i never stress whatever lose or win... as long i got mah loot...

Knowledge is power... you might notice yourself doing better than ppl who said you are crazy scientist...
