Absolutely!! A smart girl, keeps you on your toes. They're usually very confident, so you don't have to worry about insecurity as much. They're usually logical thinkers, so ou can for the most part bypass those ridiculous un winnable arguments.
And the best parts are you have someone to brain storm ideas with. Talk legit business. Have intelligent conversations with. So one second you can be discussing a movies comedic timing and the next you're talking scene locations and how the production financial setups possibly took place.
They also inspire in there on way. Most men already want to be the best version of them self they can be. But they settle for what they are based on the easy woman they get occasionally and stop trying. But an intelligent girl pushes you to keep going till you reach the summit. Savvy;)?1

I think a man wants a woman of intelligence close to or equal to what his is. So, this question seems kind of irrelevant to me. If a man is a particle physicist who teaches at university, he's probably not going to end up with someone who only completed high school. This is not to say that the woman who only completed high school isn't smart (she can be).
Ultimately, the person that you date/spend your life with is your partner. You want your "partner" to be a partner in all things, intimately, education level, and intelligence. That way you are interesting to each other.
I think men want a smart (to their level) woman. However, if you are a smart woman yourself, you will most likely attract smart men. Those men who aren't so smart won't go after you and you probably wouldn't want them to. The same is true if the genders were reversed.
Also, something to consider is that most people describe themselves as "above average" in positive qualities. In reality, every quality and differentiating factor separates all of the population into a scale between 1-100%. So, whatever the scale is measuring, (IQ, height, intelligence, household income, etc.), there will be an individual who is at 20% with consideration to everyone else. Most likely, if you are truly at the 50% mark for intelligence, you will find someone who ranks similarly on this scale in order to promote compatibility.
