    Wealth does not automatically equate to higher intelligence.  There are many factors when it comes to intelligence and remember, there are different types of intelligence, and this manifests differently for people.  Also, people can be educated and have a cognitive intelligence but still work in low paid jobs.  Equally, someone who has less education can be employed in a specific field and become quite wealthy.

    How you use your money is a better indicator of intelligence than how much money you have.

    A fool and his money are easily parted, so it is probably true. 

    Very smart people don't let you know quite how smart they are.

    And a lot of smart people know there is more to life than money.

    Well they do say intelligence is the main key to succeed in life. But being poor doesn't mean your dumb. I'm pretty poor financially but I'm pretty smart and I have a creative imagination for new ideas
