    I would much rather be intelligent - from someone who enjoys solitude!

    Famous.  If you're famous, no one really cares if you have the IQ of a rock.

    I'd deffo pick Intelligent! I love the spotlight but fame doesn't always last forever...,  being intelligent you'll always have something.

    Intelligence! If I'm correct the people who are famous and unintelligent get made fun of an awful lot...for being that way..
    And being intelligent will get you a better life than being famous. By better I mean more enriched.

    Intelligent; because the intelligent people control the fame industry and make mega-bucks off it.

    Intelligent, so I can solve my problems rather than having more with being famous.

    - If you have a note on my English, please, feel free to inform me.

    Famous, because in this day and age nobody cares if you have fame and money.

    Intelligent would allow you to be either famous or secretive depending upon your mood at the moment. Celebrity gives you a lifestlye, intelligence gives you choices.

    I would take intelligence over fame.  The fame would be nice but understanding why things are the way they are is important.

    I'd rather be intelligent... and I am.  Fame comes to some by chance.  Fame is short lived for most... 15 minutes according to Andy Warhol, the memory of whom is fading fast.  The last really famous artist there will be I think.  There are more artists alive today than in all of history.

    One hundred percent intelligence. I would much rather be smart and know about things than be famous any day

    I choose intelligence. 

    Fame does not impress me.  Intelligence does.

    Does anyone really want to be Paris Hilton?  LOL.
    Rich but dumb?  LOL.  Not me.

    Neither.  I'd rather be wise than either famous or intelligent.

    Neither are as important to me as such things as being happy, healthy, loved and loving in return.  Being famous or intelligent doesn't seem to make the things which are important to me more like to happen although both if applied in the correct manner  should provide a more than decent living standard.  However if to have all the things which matter to me I had to also be either famous or intelligent I would chose being intelligent as I have no desire to live my life in the media spotlight.

    Haha, N.E.Wright beat me to the example, I was going to mention Paris Hilton aswell.
    Intelligence every time. I admire smart people (Stephen Fry) and don't have any time for celebrities that make there name from doing very little.
