Intelligence is a big predictor of success in life.
However, the belief that we are smart can lead to atrophy. The belief that we are smart can close our minds. A closed mind is a clear predictor of failure.
Therefore, we might decide to take pride in an identity of being thoughtful and open minded. We will still be smart. However, we can do it without the downside of closing our mind.
