First, let me say that I do not wish to offend, criticize or insult any one in any way with this post. I am interested in opinions on this question: Are people with higher intelligence less happy humans? I'm in early 40's with a spouse and two kids. I have an BS degree from major University and a corporate stooge job. I would say I have average intelligence for a college graduate (not even sure what that means)... I'm sure there will be plenty of grammatical mistakes in this post, so there you go... My spouse says that I am miserable. I am no fun. I do not enjoy life. My point of view is how can I be happy when I know what the world brings? I know of all my debts, struggles with raising kids, helping them find a secure future, the political landscape, social injustice, the rat's nest of local politics and nepotism, corruption, etc. Generally speaking, children are happy. Of course they throw fits and they want what they want. But, when free to play, they are happy and content. Why? Because they have very little knowledge and no real worries. I have to believe there is a correlation to this in adults who have less knowledge and fewer concerns. Thoughts?
