    What's more important, kindness or intelligence?


  2. #2
    As much as I want to say kindness, and the world would definitely be a better place with more kind people I have to go with intelligence.

    The world is a brutal place for people who don't think things through.

    Depends.

    You really need intelligence to make your kindness in any way effective.

    If you're kind but stupid you're gonna end up being treated like shit and used by a lot of people. Whereas if you're smart about it, you can be generous without having insincere people up your ass all the time trying to mooch favours off you. You'll also be more likely to know where your kindness would be wasted and where better to invest it.

    I think kindness is better. Being intelligent doesn’t necessarily mean you have common sense, which is just as important. So if someone has that sense of kindness while being alert, I think that’s a better balance.

    One question.

    If you think posting on an anime forum at the age of 28 is pathetic then why are you making an Ask Me Anything thread at the age of 28 on an anime forum?

    The world is full of smart people, like all them scientists carelessly ruining the environment and using us as guinea pigs. Smart people make things effective, whether that thing is good or bad...usually its bad if u look back to history.

    ...But this puts a smile on my face

    Both have negative sides. High intelligence can make you overly arrogant and too much kindness can cause you to make very bad decisions.

    they're both important but if i had to toss away one quality then its kindness. if you're blessed with high emotional, social and general intelligence then you're practically a savant in all aspects of life. all three things contribute a major role in fulfilling a quality life

    i put a lot of value in kindness but it doesn't compete with what intelligence has to offer. besides, if i'm void of kindness then there's always an option to be indifferent which isn't too bad

    In the old days, I'll say intelligence is far more important, but kindness is more important in today society. If that makes sense?
