an assumption that’s often made (but possibly not always right): do intelligent people tend to follow things that are more empirically right than less intelligent people?

take dieting, for example. it’s well known that education and weight are inversely correlated. are more intelligent people more likely to pursue the weight loss strategies that are more empirically right? (they also have more money, but that may not be the main factor).

some things like self-control conflict though. also poor self-control may lead to IQ-decreasing behaviors.
