    I gotta say it.

    Intelligence, as it is undefined with limitations here, will be assumed to include computer knowledge, or the rapid learning of such things.

    Ya know what I call that? Ten times the starting pay of a fast-food cook and enough benefits to slap a doctor in the face.

    Smart obviously. Who needs to be popular when you can rule the world?

    you know lots of people with computer knowledge are not paid really much ??
    you know computer programing isn't paid that much ??
    you know that you can have great knowledge in computers, if you are not popular to the point nobody want's to even see you, you will end up jobless ?
    you know that if you are popular you can have lots of jobs even if you are not qualified ???

    just think about it

    Wait a second, did you just say a computer programmer, implying more than an odd obscurity even, aren't paid well? Since when?

    Who in their right mind can program at a OS-Designer level and doesn't go out of their way to be exclusive to higher paying jobs? Who would even try to hire someone for less than even 5x minimum wage starting?

    Next question here is: Does Intelligence include acting talents as well? That alone would hurt popularity's potential for monetary value. How many popular people can keep a high paying job, besides the lucky few here and there, without losing it within a few months due to inept ability to comprehend basic businessmanship?

    a computer programmer may be paid well, and some are even paid too much, but believe me, if you are looking for a high paying job, you should turn to something else....

    also, if you try to compare the smartest people out there against a stupid yet popular guy, of course it's easy to show the first is better, but :
    - why should the popular guy not understand basic businessmanship ??
    - why should the intelligent guy act well ?? he may, but that's not the case usually...

    and even if the intelligent guy become way richer than the other, what's the point ?? living alone is not better even if you have money

    Change "popular" to "charisma" and it'll be a contest.

    Remember guys, leaders requires charisma, not intelligence.

    Besides, the mind degenerate over time.

    I wouldn't want to change the state I'm in now, if that's an answer. If I could increase my current intelligence or my popularity, I'd increase my intelligence. I'm perfectly satisfied with my popularity, but there's no such thing as too much intelligence.
