Is having a high IQ a curse?

Ive just found out someone I know who's a bit crazy has a really high IQ (over 150). The thing is they are hard work to put up with and they take seditaves and downers. Is it worth having a high IQ when you think of all the problems it could lead to?

IQ and mental health are not related.

A friend who had studied psychology once told me that an IQ of 150 is the borderline between being a genius,and being a crank.Don't know if that is true,but I always remembered that.

We all have strengths and weaknesses. Having a high IQ and not use it properly can be disaster.

It’s more likely some other dysfunction going on in their life that resulted in the maladaptive issues than the IQ being the cause
