Lisa simpson was wrong about intelligence and happiness

Remember this?

It was from a Simpson’s episode when Homer has a surgery that removes a crayon from his cranium that inadvertently maximizes Homer’s brain activity a la Flowers for Algernon.

Now, take a look at this graph from the Economix blog:

Looks like Homer should have been happier after removing the crayon.

  1. I ACTUALLY LOVE IT! But in Flowers for Algernon the effects of intelligence was temporary, Charlie eventually returned to who he was. Moral of the story is you are who you are, and you can’t change it. If you do try you will FAIL haha. I kid.

  2. Lisa wasn’t wrong, the human capital and well beign are distinct obviously!, intelligence and hapiness has a negative correlation.
