However smart you are is exactly however smart you are. Smartness is caused by whatever factor(s) cause it. Amount of smarts is just one characteristic of a person among other characteristics of a person.
Smart has no connection to your own understanding of good or bad, right or wrong. You know jerks who are smart and great people who are not smart. You yourself have been both a jerk & great at different times.
Smart is over-rated. It is not a virtue.
Only virtue matters. Act on your virtues.
