I don't think the two are correlated. There are plenty of honest folks who are dumb-as-a-brick, and plenty of dishonest intellegent people. But, given that someone is going to be dishonest, I'd say that the less intellegent get caught more than the intellegent. Perhaps that skews the perception.

In my experience, intelligent people are more dishonest than dumber people.

My bad, it was 4 but their names were Kellie, Kelly, Kellie and Kelli. But you can see how I could make that mistake.

If my teaching experience is anything to go by, I would think the opposite.

I would also guess that there is cause/effect here. Dishonesty causes decreased intelligence.

I think increased intelligence causes dishonesty.
