It is not the best way to determine how wise people are by how happy they are because someone may be very intelligent, but very depressed or totally stupid, but very happy. In our society, intelligence is and anent, but can be developed; however, when it comes to happiness, it’s a totally different story because emotions or feelings are something that we have little control over. Intelligence should not be measured by how happy people are because they are two very contrasting things.
For example, Charlie in the book, “Flowers for Algernon” by Daniel Keyes, was very slow because he was a mentally challenged man, but he wasn’t a depressed person. Instead he was a joyful person. He always had a positive attitude. He is 30- 35 years old and has an IQ of 30. There was an experiment that a few scientists were doing. This experiment involved a surgery that would make any living animal or person become exceptionally intelligent. It was first tested on a lab rat named Algernon. It was successful, so the scientists decided to perform the surgery on Charlie. A few months later, Charlie was a genius. As Charlie got smarter and smarter, he realized that his “friends” at the bakery weren’t his real friends; they were just making fun of him the whole time. As a result, Charlie started to get depressed because he found out the truth to everything. Soon he returned to the slow man with an IQ of 30 because the effects of the surgery wore off. In the beginning, Charlie was very slow; however, he was always happy. After the surgery, he was a genius, but depressed. If he was judged and someone said that he was smart when Charlie was happy, they would be wrong because he was mentally challenged. However, if someone said that Charlie was stupid when he was depressed, they would be wrong because after the surgery, he was smart, depressed, but a genius.
Abraham Lincoln is another person that was wise even though he was a depressed man. Abraham is known as one of the greatest presidents of the United States of America. To this day, there were more than 16,000 books written about him. If Abraham Lincoln was one of the greatest presidents of the United States, he must be very smart; however, not everyone knows that he was the most depressed one out of them all. His friends were suicide watched over him so that they can prevent him from committing suicide. He also had two major breakdowns. He said, “I am now the most miserable man living.” That is one of his darkest quotes. Abraham Lincoln was a very depressed man; however, he was still a very wise man.
In conclusion, it is not the best way to determine how wise people are by how happy they are because many people in our society, there are very depressed, yet very intelligent people and very content, but very stupid. It wouldn’t be the best way to determine how wise people are because there is no relationship between intelligence and happiness.
