Sure, happiness may be somewhat positively correlated, but correlation does not imply causation. There are many other factors that affect one's happiness as well.

Happiness is related to intelligence squared

I'd rather have the truth shown to me sooner than later.
If learning the truth means losing my happiness, It's a trade off that I can deal with.

No wonder I'm depressed.

the only thing I think of whenever I see this is some self absorbed jack ass going "Woe is me, I'm so smart and so miserable and every one happier then me must be dumb."

Or the "Every one's stupid but me" mentality so many people on the internet seem to subscribe to

i think if you dedicate your life for knowledge, you can't be truly happy, because friendship, love, and a social life are essential

That explains school!

I think this is pretty much ******** , since most of the genuinely intelligent people I know are incredibly happy. The only people I ever see who say this are super ******* pathetic and want to make themselves feel smart. There really is no truth to this at all. Dumb people can be (and generally are) more unhappy and intelligent people are generally more happy.

This is because in order to become intelligent you must make sacrifice and release your happiness.

I agree with this post for the most part. Not that smart people are unhappy and dumb people are happy. But that it's easier for dumb people to happy than it is for smart people.

The options you gave us to think are.

Is it OK to be stupid and happy
Is it OK to be smart and Dumb
Is it not OK to be either?

You're implying this graph is even remotely accurate.

*smart and sad.   
   
   
Are you happy now? Does this turn you on? Is your life a constant orgasmic stream of joy yet?

I'm one of the most miserable ***** in existence, and I'm barely average intellectually. I hate everything.

I feel like this graph should start off going upwards, level off, and then drop off sharply. Up to a point, the smarter you are the happier you are, because you are able to better achieve your goals in life. Just my thoughts.

Ignorance may correlate to happiness; however, intelligence is not necessarily correlated with happiness.

You can find happiness in the abstract, it's not necessarily said that you become less happy the more knowledgeable you become

I think I agree with this. I've been having philosophy classes for the past two years, as they're mandatory here, no matter what program you study in. And since I've had them, I realize the more I know about Man and society, the more pessimist I am. Basically we're just some animals who can think, and someday we just agreed to live all together. Then, someone decided that ''hey, let's pay doctors and lawyers the most'' or that kind of things, and here we are today with a society that focuses on money and not on humans. The End.

In many cases this is true.
Because an increased intellect will usually be more skeptic to everything.
Thus, doing things then and there becomes less frequent and you will loose much spontaniousness(?) Which tend to be a trait of happy people.

It's easier to be happy and intelligent when there aren't so many ******* stupid people around. Unfortunately, they don't seem to be going away...
