Would you rather be 25% smarter than you currently are, or have 50% better self-discipline?

These are percentages, so really very few people would get much out the intelligence gain - only the smartest and those who need just the slight increase. It'd be far wiser to take the discipline.

Discipline. I need better willpower, control my temper, motivate myself to do things

Same here, but I'm smart enough to know that a lot more intelligence could only help. With 25% more intelligence I could instantly tell you within 5 points how smart I'd be rather than the 10 points we're at now, like from 130ish to 160ish.

I feel pretty smart already, if I had discipline I would probably be much richer...so I am definitely down for some more willpower and consistency using it!

I believe that we are all smart enough (few exceptions)... Maybe you don't know much... That's different... But you have the ability to know it or do it, if you try hard enough... And that my friends, that's discipline!

Oh, *please,* self discipline! I'm rating so very badly at that currently. While I think my brain cells are winking off on a daily basis, I believe the self discipline would make me a much happier person overall.

I have no idea what my IQ is because all that IQ tests reveal is how good you are at taking IQ tests and I don't need to validate my intelligence with one. You should have known that just a number without an identifier would cause confusion, Mr. 176.

03/16/15 7:42 pm

A number w/o an identifier causing confusion? I mean it would be an obvious conclusion to think that you're talking about IQ, because after all it was in the same comment as, "What would I do with that kind of thinking power?".

One shouldn't assume that people know what you mean if you don't make it clear. I assumed he meant IQ but wanted to clarify, just in case, because I shouldn't assume what he meant if he didn't make it totally clear.

But an assumption needs no clarity to be considered one! Because its an assumption, not an assertion!
