Writer's Block: Arts v. smarts

Given the choice, would you prefer to be a world-class (visual or performing) artist or an intellectual genius? Which, in your opinion, would facilitate a more fulfilling career and social life?

Yes.  And yes.  As in, why not an intellectual genius painter or violinist?   And why not include all creative arts (speaking as a writer.)    There's no inherent contradiction between intellectual and creative gifts--they often exist together.
