Serious question. I've been thinking a lot about this lately. I have fairly high intelligence, no genius or anything, but even so I sometimes wish I were dumber. While there are some joys I get from being smart, a lot of things are either annoying, depressing, or grating about day-to-day life. I find myself correcting people and knowing a ton of details that people don't care about, and it gets tiresome. One example would be play a drinking game. Part of this is OCD, but once we cover rules it's in my nature to adhere to them very strictly. I can't tell you how many times I've been told to "lighten up" or "oh whatever" because (for good reason) it's not really about following the rules. The same thing used to happen with email forwards ... I would always be the one pointing out how or why they're fake or illogical or whatever, and it made me the "buzzkill". So, for those of you who would consider yourselves intelligent, do you find that being that way gives you more joy in day-to-day life, or do you feel that "ignorance is bliss"?
