Highly Intelligent People Aren’t Miserable

I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.

— Albert Einstein

There’s no single measure of intelligence

You’re smarter than you think

Waitresses are highly intelligent

Solitary genius is a myth

Perceived genius is just skill-stacking

Intelligence doesn’t prelude happiness

Solving problems makes us happy

But “being smart” makes us miserable

Intelligence doesn’t exclude love

How to be happy if you’re smart
