No. Maybe to a slight extent cleverer people may, when they develop any mental problem ( exactly as the rest of us can ) may have more complex problems ; and occasionally I find when treating a highly intelligent person with mental problems, there can be a problem that they might not cooperate as well with therapy, trying to outwit the therapist, and playing intellectual games, rather than just working towards getting better
