    Smart as that way you can leave a permanent legacy in the world with advancing humanity and working on the big problems we face now against our survival and in our hardships ( medicine, starvation, global warming) While money will get u remembered for only a few generations of your descendents.

    Extremely rich, not because I'd like to live a lavish lifestyle but rather so I could donate as much money as possible into world problems such as poverty. I could potentially, eradicate it depending on how rich I am, I think.

    Smart. Not even because I could use the smarts to gain riches. Just because it'd be more rewarding.

    Rich. Smart would know too much about the world and with my temptations it would drive me crazy.

    With near-limitless riches, you can recruit a whole army of geniuses to work on those problems for you, and you can have them hold up a banner with your name on it the whole time if you want to be remembered.

    Rich.

    I'm clearly no genius but am already smart enough to see the world somewhat differently to others.

    If I was one of the smartest people in the world I doubt I would be very happy.

    Not that I want to brag about myself but here's the thing: being deadly smart already, I'd want to be rich now .....
