  • Well if we are just talking about doubling my IQ points, that would give me the highest in history. That would be pretty sweet, but I don't think I'd be able to live anything approaching a normal life. I would have to deeply consider this.

    Choosing intelligence would be better for the world, and choosing happiness would be better for myself.

    Intelligence would distance me from all of my friends, as I would be nearly triple their IQs. Social interactions would be tough. I'd be even more of a social outcast than I already am.

  • I would rather be twice as smart. I'm already a happy person. If I was smarter, I could get a full time job and not have to study as much to get a good GPA. I would have great grades and money, score. :) And if would free up a lot of time so I could spend it with my boyfriend and friends.

  • Definitely twice as happy - I hate this notion of "Smart", I feel everyone is good at somethings, and crap at other things - I bet the top scientist in the world has to call a mechanic when his car breaks down on the side of the road - Who is the smarter then? - To create an elite of smart people is bullshit - We might as well go whole hog and have one for beautiful people, tall people etc - No, everyone has their place in this world and it should be on a equal standing with everyone else regardless of their place in life.

  • I'm decently happy. I'm decently smart. All else equal, I'll take the smarts. Because intelligence=money in the office, and money is really key in many areas of life.

  • I feel like I'm smart enough for most common things, so happiness seems like a wiser choice

    But then again , this is a multiplication, what if what I need is a constant amount of extra happiness rather than just "twice as much"

  • Twice the happiness I have now would still not be very much. Now I don't consider myself a genius, but when it comes to intelligence, there's a lot more there to multiply. Most of the things that make me happy require some intelligence to do, and I'd also waste a lot less time on studying, which would leave more time for me to practice my social skills.

  • I hate you for doing this...

    I don't know 😭😭

    Getting smarter would make me a genius, twice it's like too much intelligence. So... I could learn as many languages as I want and I could get into any university I would desire to get in.
    With this... I would study in a place that would make me very happy and I'll be able to achieve my goals, and achieving my goals would make me the happiest person on earth.

    I take inteligence.

  • Double my happiness.
    I'm not in one of the best terms with my best friend right now.
    She's making a big deal about stuff and overreacting.
    And now she just made a remark of "... maybe we shouldn't have became friends last year."
    I'm really sad that she's done this, and that was the last text (three hours ago).
    We've been having a texting feud for about yesterday and today.
    Errgh... who cares about being smart or intelligent at this point, my life needs some happiness atm.

    Being smart doesn't mean your life is going to be any better - depends on the country where you live and the level of ambition you have.
    I say happiness is more important. =)

  • Tough choice. I can get both on my own, but I think I'd have to go with twice as smart. I have people in my life who make me happier day by day and I am very serious about education. I try my best to learn everything I can, inside and outside of school, but to become instantly twice as smart would give me more time to learn more. I get my happiness from the people I love.
