Question of the Day: Intelligence or Integrity


So, after having a crazy day that didn’t go so well, here’s my question:

Would you rather someone question your intelligence or your integrity?

  1. My integrity.
    I got it down…pretty good.
    I am intelligent also, but not in all area!

  2. I would rather someone question my intelligence. Intelligence can be easily proved by talking about things that you’re knowledgable about. Integrity is like trust. Once somebody says they dont trust you, it takes time to prove to them you’re trustworthy. Similarly, questioned integrity takes time to get reastablished. So I dont want anyone questioning my integrity. Your integrity is a integral part of how you’re viewed by many. Your faith, trustworthiness, and integrity are usually things that people covet in a mate.

  3. Integrity, honesty, high character values, etc…trumps intelligence. Call me out for decision making, but my not my integrity.

  4. Man, that’s tough. (good one E)

    Intelligence. There will be many chances to demonstrate that. Integrity-once lost, is tough to regain. Unlike intelligence, I feel like it’s tough to get another chance to show that you make the best decisions when it’s hard.

  5. Intelligence, without a doubt. Because i believe intelligence can be increased, learned. Integrity is like personality, shaped from childhood through life’s experiences. And i don’t think it is easily altered. So if you really don’t think I have integrity, they you probably don’t think i’ll gain it in a short amount a time.

    so question my intelligence. because even you can’t deny that it can improve. but don’t question my integrity. because we all know that it’s a part of my personality make-up. and that doesn’t change easily.

  6. I just cannot be integrated with other people i’m very antisocial and a bit parnoid, people don’t like me
