The Warren Buffett's quote says that temperament improves one's investor status, not intelligence.

Temperament is the set of attitudes that we own from birth and that distinguish us. It is like what we call character.

In the quote, temperament means how we deal with our lives. With which emotions, thoughts, and feelings we are subject to events or how we trigger them.

Intelligence is another valuable element for our social or work life, but not necessary for different situations. We may decide to take a path that does not need a high intellect. Still, the way we react to situations differentiates each of us individuals. Those who succeed in elevating themselves in the social world have a temperament that adapts more easily to society. Those who succeed in investments have a character suited to business.
