Intelligence is massively overrated

Success doesn't require intelligence or creativity. Most successful people have neither. Most intelligent and creative people waste their abilities by failing to focus them and not understanding how others are successful. If many stupid and untalented people can be successful in big and small ways, why can't someone who is supposedly smart and creative?


- the organized (make and stick to plans, adjust them to changing realities, organize groups, deep thoughts not neeeded)
  - variation: know the normal 10 or so ways to reorganize what has become temporarily disordered instead of allowing chaos to wreck and drown a project
- the superactive (spending lots of time to gain knowledge and experience in their field)
  - variation: the enduring (long hours without complaint or tiredness)
- the dependable (always delivers in the end, long term trust)
  - variation: the punctual
