When I see dumb or brilliant thinking, I reach for the Noetic Explorer™ (Smarts or not).

The Noetic Explorer™

This section is for advanced users in the cohort.

"The Greek word meaning “to think” or “to perceive” came to English as noesis, meaning “purely intellectual knowledge” or “a process or act of thinking.” The adjective noetic means “of, relating to, or based on the intellect.” -Merriam Webster Dictionary

Ranking E. Hunter™ Comments

E. Hunter's comments on the top two - Perfectionist and Enhancer:

The Perfectionist is the smartest but the second placed Enhancer is probably the better all-rounder. They are easily the better manager, by a long way.
The Enhancer has far better application of intelligence and a better way to apply systems. They also have a key characteristic that the Perfectionist does not.
This characteristic is the ability to be strategic and think ahead with a detailed plan. That is a very rare and special gift. It is no secret that the Perfectionist is very intelligent but is generally unable to plan very well. It just is not in their programming. They always need more time to do more research. They can be hopelessly impractical and cannot see the big picture. e.g. The software has been written according to the functional specification would satisfy the Perfectionist. The fact that it does not work is irrelevant. The Enhancer would not take this stance under any circumstances.
The Enhancer is a little less flexible, a little less imaginative, but their ability to plan, plot and prepare means they can bring their smarts much better to bear than the Perfectionist can. Chess, widely considered the ultimate braniac game, is the domain of the Enhancer. They are the cunning strategist.
The Enhancer is also more often a generalist compared with the Perfectionist. While the Perfectionist may really love their personal areas of interest, they usually only know a handful of topics in any real depth. The Enhancer likely knows fewer topics, but actually understands them in a systematic and disciplined way. They actually fully internalize the subjects while the Perfectionist just likes to have the knowledge without actually mastering many to the degree needed for application. And that is the issue. It must be mastered whereas the Enhancer will bring about a system that actually works today.
It is true that a Perfectionist may be able to translate a document from English to Greek 40 years since studying Greek but not be able to fill the windscreen washer bottle in their car. That is a real example.
