@comrade_Comrade You can both be right. You're saying that smart people move toward more diverse areas (by which I assume you mean cities) while @rphb is saying that cities make you ignorant of certain facts of life. You can be intelligent but ignorant. For example Newton was smarter than me, but I know more about quantum physics and relativity than he did. He was smart but ignorant (lacking knowledge).

Similarly, a very intelligent person can be ignorant of the difficulties of life if that person is too sheltered and protected.
