naww man... you can be smart AND happy. smart has it's own culture that keeps it's members happy, although when asking this question one might also want to ask "who trully IS smart". plenty of people who say they are smart aren't viewed as smart by others who also consider themselves to be smart.

No. Intelligence doesn't make one unhappy. It's idealism that makes one unhappy. There are plenty of brillant, selfish, cutthroat happy folks out there. I know this because I am surrounded by them.

It is never better to be blissfully ignorant. I would rather be aware of the imperfections of society and learn to accept them, because with knowledge, comes wisdom. Plus, if everyone chose to ignore the ugliness in the world, we would never learn to grow (^_^)y

It depends.....
because sometimes because you're so intelligent you become complicated and think Complicated as well
but if you're intelligence is very useful for you then it can make you happy

It can happen... such as when someone doesn't understand you and so automatically assumes you're wrong (then proceeds to point that out to the crowd that so conveniently gathers >_<).

However, it's no more common to be made unhappy by intelligence than by ignorance. There is no concrete link.

Well, to be intelligent would be better, cause well, being stupid to have less worries is only running away from the real problems, if you wish to ignore something than try to think of answers for it I think its sad and not a happy thing. I'd rather be intelligent, cause its those who think of solution that make others happy rather than themselves

I think what he's trying to explain is that when your so smart sometimes you think every1 around is an idoit so you avoid them and through time you become an aloner (one who avoids contact with others). So then you have no friends, no life, no happiness. But if your ignorant you don't really care about anything but having fun. People like to hang out with people that are happy and full of fun with no worries so you make many friends and your popular. For me, I'm not sure. I'm very smart for age so I think every1 around me is a moron so I don't have many friends b/c they think there right when I am, so I'm stubborn and avoid them but later though the day I say stupid things that make them laugh and then there my friends again so...I HAVE THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS!!

being Intelligent does not make a person a happy one but being Wise does.

Being smarter means you'll see the world in ways other people can't. You'll see the world for how it really is. It's up to you weather you choose to be sadden by everything you'll see or to stay happy.

I need them ^.^ Even smart people need the stupid ones beacuse inteligence isnt all and we still need someone to talk to, control us, limit us, praise us and just say those stupid things that make us feel like we are smarter.
