Is it better to be extremely intelligent, deep and have a very good understanding of why and how things work and be very insightful with good reasoning and logic skills and be basically content with life.

Or is it better to be shallow in thinking, without much understanding or logic but you are very happy?

Both are important. I don't think someone will be happy with no intelligence either.

Ignorance is bliss.
I may be smart, but I don't like to sacrifice my happiness over it.
Which is why I avoid nerds and IQ-quoters and hang out with people who can be both intelligent and have fun.

Happiness is something every person strives for, wishes for. But real happiness isn't something absolute, plus who said been very intelligent means you are 'fated' or 'meant to be' sad?

You realize if your cognitively smart your brain is one dimensional or wired for the preferrable purpose only.Thus other areas of your brain are more dysfunctional.Different sets of intelligences have different connections with your emotional side of your brain.Its mainly based on the wired connectivity of your brain if your infact very cerebal and deductive with your thinking most likely you won't have the same ability emotional and socially as an average intellectual being.
