Wisdom of course !
An intelligent but naive/unwise person can easily be misled, taken
advantage of, brainwashed and manipulated by unscrupulous people. Wise men won't. It also takes a fair amount of intelligence to be wise, but a intelligent person might be completely devoid of wisdom. In other words, a wise man is an intelligent man, an intelligent man may not be a wise man.
Thus, its better to be a wise guy then a smart ass
And I agree with Amfibius : lay off the religious talk.

this I agree with. I have come across an intelligent person with super lousy EQ & zero foresight where the consequences of her words and actions are concerned.

You can study for intelligence but you have to earn your wisdom.
