Thinking on opponents' time

Most of my opponents are wondering how I'm able to managing my answers to their moves so quick on a very high level!? There is no mystery - I'm just thinking on there time! There are only very rare situations where a answer of may opponents is able to surprising me. So my next move is nearly always clear and I can do it immediately and - after it - I'm thinking on of next opponent's move. Just a suggestion. Wolfgang

You may loose some time & energy... I don't think it's useful at correspondence chess time controls, like over the board... You have time, so : Why ?

Thinking in chess variants cannot lost time for me. It is not so important for me that the variants (I had thought about) will played. The contest with all chess positions is also my enjoyment - not only the success (or disappointment) by result of the game. Wolfgang

I agree with that...

But so many variants & ideas, we have to choose... Games are the reason & the result.

I dont get why you want to save time. You have plenty and I see no reason not to use it. Any line that is not a forced mate yet needs more time imo.
