Intelligence... again: ?? intelligence as a cause of pseudo-perfectionism

We raise the sensitive issue of intelligence from time to time. (We have noted in the past that, on this side of the Atlantic, the study of intelligence is a mine field where few dare tread as far as research goes. Instead, the conventional wisdom of the day is that there are innumerable genes corresponding to intelligence [and personality], leading to the politically correct illusion that every child at birth is a tabula rasa that can be molded to any desired configuration by parental "nurture", education and by other environment means.)
We noted in previous posts that the "NPA personality test" showed that in mental retardation, NPA types having the P trait tend to give test results that are less perfectionistic. Thus, in mental retardation, an NP type tends to give test results of an N type, an NPA+ type resembles an NA type, etc. We posited that the test results mirrored real life, i.e., a mentally retarded NP actually resembled and behaved like (and with a gestalt of) an N type, etc.
This raises the question whether the converse is true. That is, does an N type of high intelligence give the impression of an NP type? Does an A type (? Vladimir) of high intelligence give a gestalt of a PA type?
