    Instead of trying to create a way to prove how intelligent I am, I'll just accept it for what it all boils down to.

    I couldn't decide right away, but I would choose creativity. With just intelligence you can accomplish a lot, but I believe it's easier to accomplish greatness with creativity because things innovation, uniqueness, and originality are often key to the ideas that make the biggest difference and stand out.

    Also, I think high intelligence is more common than high creativity, I don't have any stats to back this up, and I'm not even sure if you can test for creativity... perhaps you could test someone's divergent thinking.
    Yep. Pretty much my opinion on this topic. Creativity makes the world a more enjoyable, bareable place to live in. Intelligence although handy in many ways is overrated and largely relative to ones living conditions and importance of what that person knows. For example you could know a shit load about maths, equations and greek history, but stick that person in the middle of the amazon and he wouldn't last long.

    Don't know, never had to make this choice as an ENFP . We get to miss out on being organised and punctual instead. Think I measured full on three quadrants and almost zero on that quadrant in the four quadrant test.

    Which would I get rid of if I had to? Probably intelligence. I derive a lot more fun from creativity than intelligence. Intelligence is nice though. Just less important to me.

    I picked high creativity, but that's a toughie, because I really wouldn't want to give up intelligence either.

    . This is why I love creativity, and the INFPs view of the world.

    Intelligence is the ability to follow the rules. Creativity is the ability to break the rules and replace them with your own.

    I can think of many examples of successful people with high creativity and low IQ (if that's what we should consider intelligence here), such as people form entertainment world, writers, artists such as Andy Warhol, etc.

    But on a whim I picked intelligence. If you're a genius of math and logic(even though high creativity might be indispensable there too, but well.. screw it), it's more likely that you'll be successful regardless of any other factors, I can think of Stephen Hawking, John Nash, the guy who invented Bittorrent or of my friends who's a software genius for whom I see a very bright future ahead...
