Sorry no funny here. I am just curious what the funnyjunkers think about this. Do you think ignorance is bliss? Do you think everything can be sacrificed to uncover the truth? What does Funnyjunk prefer? Happiness or truth or maybe even both?

If you're intelligent and your life is devoid of happiness, might I suggest a path of insanity? You can be intelligent, delusional, AND happy all at the same time!

Excuse me. I am trying to do the fish stick. It is a very delicate state of mind.

There's more than one type of intelligence. Being intelligent doesn't have to mean you accept the truth.

Very true about the different types of intelligence. But accepting the truth is the very thing i am talking about. It can lead to joy, happiness, but also to misery and depression. I just want to know how you guys feel about it.

There's something to be said for accepting the truth and moving on. You don't have to dwell on negatives. Sometimes it's better to acknowledge the little things in life.
I know that's ridiculously cliche, but it's helped me through some of the toughest times in my life.

Thank you dearly for your opinion on this. that is just the feedback i was looking for. But dont you see for example the vast universe and see all this, which we cannot comprehend, and you just go on? Doesnt the thought of what it out there and what we mean and can do trap you? I, sometimes, just cannot move on from a thought, which is so important, so decisive to what i am.

In my short lifetime, I will see the human race evolve as new ideas and discoveries are made. Our medicine, knowledge of the universe, technology, and other such things will see dramatic changes and improvements (if all goes well).

and I would love to come back to this conversation in the morning when I am rested and able to think more clearly. I will certainly come back if you wish to continue.

Intelligence wouldn't cause so much unhappiness if there weren't so many stupid ******* people on this planet.

Id say it was more like this.

If you're a retard you're not gonna have much fun, and you'll be happier the more intellegent you get until you get to the point where you can get to as intellegent as you can be a little ditzy but have the ignorence is bliss part,

When you get past that, you dont have the ignorence is bliss and are just less intellegent than everyone else, so thats gonna suck. And it slowly gets better until you get a bit more intellegent than average. Then it kinda plateaus at high, cos you are intellegent without being too intellegent.

Then it would go down as you get too intellegent and you will find it hard to fit in with people and socialise well with others.

Its estimated people get along best with people around the same IQ of about 10-15 on average.

And remember there are 8 types of intellegence. Academic intellegence is just one.

Yeah, but by retard I mean the actual meaning of retard. Slow, so stupid.

Not mentally disabled/ handicapped low intellegence

Frankly, I think it should be more of a parabola. There is a point where your intelligence starts to help you realize the beauty of life, even in its imperfection.

Worked for Carl Sagan that way, for example.

Worked that way for me. I still get depressed periodically, but as I've grown up I've gotten happier because I understand things better, and I can see the good through the bad. It's tough to do that when your stupid.

"Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know."
- Ernest Hemingway

Hemingway, however, was miserable during his life; he had 7 different wives, several more girlfriends and ended up killing himself. Probably shouldn't take that too seriously.

The problem, though, with this is everyone who's unhappy will instantly think they're intelligent.

The two don't necessarily have a direct correlation, but there is a pattern that people who are intelligent tend to be unhappy.

To enjoy life is such a vague expression and disregards the different destinies lives can have. So no, you can't make a distinction like that.

empirical evidence will tell you the correlation doesn't exist in either direction.

I sometimes think the link between happiness and intelligence is slightly overrated. Most people consider themselves intelligence even through they might not seem it. There have been several intelligent and sad people, but haven't there also been lots of people, who were both stupid and depressed?

Just because some people are depressed doesn't mean they are intelligent, and happy people aren't always ignorant and stupid...

One of the main problems is there are 8 types of intellegence. Academic is just one of eight.

Social intellegence is another. You know some people who arent very clever but they can get on with everyone and everyone thinks they are cool/ they get all the girls?

They are social genius' with way above average social intellegence. I'd much rather be a social genius than Academic genius

I believe I'm an intelligent man, for the most part, even if I look like a ******* moron half the time, I still believe I am intelligent.

But my sadness doesn't come from some **** like "Crushed by my own genius" or some **** like that. I'm sad because my life goes wrong often. Sure, my intelligence causes me to overthink and freak myself out, but it's easy to dispel that, it's not the reason I'm depressed.

I will use my cleverness and brilliance to conquer depression, not let it drag me down. I will achieve my dreams with my intelligence, not let it kill them. Logically, my dream is not profitable or maybe even feasible in my case. Will that stop me? No. Because if I let my intelligence hold me back instead of helping me move forward, whats the point of having it? I use it to fight the depression, not cause it.
