Is intelligence more or less common in academia than it is amongst the non-academic population? Probably about the same. Education is never a simple process; people learn different things from experience. Somebody grasps how to make themselves happy, someone learns how to make two books sound the same; someone discovers that they like feeling important, someone learns how to best please their superiors. Education lets people make more informed choices, and gives them more refined languages to express their desires, but it doesn’t displace pathological motives.
