There’s no correlation. Some smart people are quiet, some are loud. Some simple people are quiet, some are loud.

I used to get asked "why are you so quiet?" at school.

Not saying I'm very smart, I am also not remotely shy, but I didn't want to be judged by everyone else for prioritising grades so much
By the time sixth form rolled around I was very not quiet

Why are some very smart people so quiet?
Thinking, plotting, analysing - possibly a bit on the shy side too. Might not want to say something in fear of making a fool of themselves. Sometimes they might have a real want to join in but never quite know what to say or may be thinking of something to say and by the time they have built up courage to blurb something out the moment has passed.
Sometimes they might not feel it's always necessary nor feel it's the right thing for them to do. Sometmies they might have been treated poorly in childhood and learnt that staying quiet is in their best interrest.
