If you could either be immeasurably wealthy but of low to average intelligence or immeasurably intelligent with low to average income, which would you choose and why?

    I would rather be immeasurably intelligent with low to average income because if I was immeasurably intelligent I would have known how to make money and be rich but would have worked out money doesn’t buy happiness and that I can be perfectly content with less money. If I was that intelligent I would hope I was actually using it to help others which explains the lower income.

    This is funny to me. I know I should say be intelligent with less money, but for some odd reason I want to say wealthy with low intelligence. If I had low intelligence, maybe I’d be too stupid to realize how stupid I was. Maybe I’d just be happy.

    Of course, this could stem from the fact that I feel like I am intelligent, yet am NOT wealthy, nor will ever BE wealthy. (Married a preacher, you know…hhhmmmm, was that intelligent? 🙂 So maybe intelligence doesn’t necessarily create wealth.

    True, money can’t buy happiness, but in my mind I feel like it would alleviate much of the stress and worry in my life.

    What do YOU think, Kaye?

    I would pick measurable intelligence with low to average income. Happiness does not come from money. It does relieve some of the stresses in life, but it can create other issues in people that you love. I believe that people who have less can be happier. Plus, if I am moderately intelligent, then hopefully, we would fall closer to average income and not lower income.

    Because I have never truly had wealth (not even what would be considered an average income), but am considered fairly intelligent, I would like to stay that way. I mean, I know nothing different, and really like my brain.
    I would, however, like to try out the wealthy thing, just for a day. You know, try on the feeling of not having to wonder how the bills will get paid, how to get the food for the kids, etc. Who knows, I might like it. LOL!

    I lean toward the intelligence, but I’d prefer a sense of contentment while following my purpose with just enough to keep my family comfortable.

    definitely higher intelligence, lower income–like all the other comments, money doesn’t equal happiness. Pr 30:28 (?) is my thought on all that-not too rich, or too poor.
