Does rationality tend to track intelligence-level?

No. Intelligence is the ability to draw the right conclusions from the data, whereas rationality is the ability to make decisions that serve one's interests. The more intelligent people are, the more likely they are to have complex and internally coherent interests, and the more difficult it consequently is to make decisions that validate all of those interests. By contrast, an unintelligent person tends to have a few stable interests, making it easy to make decisions that validate those interests.
