If you were to choose between being gifted intellectually or physically, which would you choose? Why?

It is out of world to be gifted intellectually as it brings in life plenty of new things like being able to communicate n a very positive way ,aid us to behave sensibly,help us to make independent and thought-provoking decisions.It also breaks monotony which previl in our lives as it opens new world of imaginations and creativity.One for obvious reason is that you youself are satisfied with your tacklings and at mind have own identity.

I would almosst say an athlete. I'm no athlete but they seem to have more fun than the brainy ones. My son in law is super smart but he talks down to people and makes everyone not want to talk to him.

I prefer be gifted intellectually. because: 1. When we were kid, the Ranking of every classes was looked from the scores which was needed intellectually. 2. We need intellectually too for choosing who will be our friends and partner. If we have intellectual, we won't choose bad friends, right? Also, we can think how to make friend to other person, and how to treat your relationship. 3. Of course we need more intellectual for applying a job. If we have smart brain, many company will search for us. Also, we can get a job in Sports too. 4. If we only good in physic, but low intellectual, we only can get a job in Sports. and if we get injured, and can't do exercies anymore, our glory will be ended.. So, I better to be gifted more itellectually than physically.. ^^

I'd want to be a genius as i think that would be more useful to others and to myself in the long run.

Oh, give me brains over brawn every time. Though ideally, both :)As to why, you have what's inside your head all your life, but physical advantage has a limited time before ageing catches up with you.

I'd like to be intellectual. There are so many more options to being intellectual. You can get better jobs, not to mention having the smarts to know how to keep yourself fit and healthy.... Yeah, definately smart is the way to go!

If I had a choice between being a genius or an athlete, I'd definitely rather be a genius. I never much cared for athletes. The ones I knew never seemed to give a dam about geniuses, and the smart people were often put down by the athletes. I don't want to be in that class, I'd rather be smart. Same with my boyfriend!! I fell in love with him because of his brilliant mind, and loving nature. Neither of us have ever been extremely athletic.

I am super competitive, so I think I would love to be an athlete. I would love the idea of getting to use my competitive nature in that kind of environment, if I were able to go pro. I mean, I think there i smuch more social value for geniuses than athletes, but boy would it be fun for me...
