There is an aspect about "trying too hard", although I think generally it's more to do with too much intensity or being OCD than volume for many activities.

I don't think that's what's being talked about in the bit of nonsense that was posted.

Do you think a similar paradigm exists in excelling at mental disciplines or are they less/more talent dependent?

Define 'mental discipline' for me here. What are you talking about either generally or specifically?

Chess is specifically mentioned in this article since it was one of the first paradigms studied in terms of this stuff.
