Thinking consciously

Intelligence and thinking are complementary...thinking is more active and situational. Great thinkers have initially scored less in the traditional metrics of Intelligence.Street smart people will probably score less in Intelligence tests. While both Intelligence and thinking are linked to knowledge, experience, attitudes etc thinking is about not closing options, not making final conclusions too quickly before evaluating other directions etc while an intelligent person needs to be exactly opposite. He should be a quick decision maker, be logical to defend/counter arguments=all very short term success metrics. Thinking metrics are longer term and therefore the incentive to practice thinking is lesser. I strongly believe a person with average intelligence can do a better job than a person with extraordinary intelligence if the former practices thinking consciously.
