INTELLIGENCE leads to greater success than being nice, conscientious or generous, a study has found.

Experts found those with higher IQs show “significantly higher” levels of cooperation.

Those with lower IQs are less consistent or able to predict the consequences of their actions, they said.

Personality traits such as trust, generosity, agreeableness and conscientiousness affected behaviour but in smaller measures, and only initially.

Researchers at the Universities of Bristol, Minnesota in the US and Heidelberg in Germany devised a series of strategy games to test cooperative behaviour in social and workplace ­situations.

Those with a higher IQ cooperated more and earned more money as part of the game.

The study concluded that a society is cohesive if people are smart enough to be consistent in their strategies and to foresee the consequences of their actions.

Prof Eugenio Proto, of Bristol University, said: “People might naturally presume that people who are nice, conscientious and generous are automatically more cooperative.

“But intelligence is the primary condition for a socially cohesive, cooperative society. This scenario can be applied to the workplace A good heart and behaviour have an effect too but it’s transitory and small.”
