It all depends what you're definition of intelligence actually is. If we follow the classic model of IQ, memory, learning/educational accomplishments and use that as a benchmark, to me, that's far too narrow, where does wisdom come into that equation, thinking outside of the box?

There's been the mentioning of success, again, what's the yardstick, Katie plastic Price selling her body/soul for a few quid? What about those that don't have piles of cash in the bank that archive immense human right victories for others without any personal gain for themselves which at times causes such people personal loss of their freedoms, ridicule in the press, ostracised from the wider community?

Wisdom isn't strongly related to intelligence at all, and the likes of "thinking outside the box" would probably be covered in most metrics that define basic intelligence. Classic examples being the rather literal nine dots puzzle, and others.

And for the record, others brought up success - success is in no way related to intelligence at all. "Success" is driven by many factors, sometimes one of those factors is indeed intelligence but it doesn't have to be and often isn't, so the two are not strongly connected at all, be that "good success" or "bad success".

Is it intelligent to be caught up in the rat race and working 60+ hrs a week?
Only to retire and die

Define intelligent living?

One of the references which I used for debates - The End of Education: Redefining the Value of School by Neil Postman. David Ferrer has written a review on it: the most interesting part is about multiculturalism in education.

One more article - School transitions: beginning of the end or a new beginning?
