Character foundation, talent for service – both are important.
Character is by applying the divine counsels in our daily life.
Talent is by developing our personal abilities.
Both need to be done through physical, human and divine education in all the days of our life.
Results might be measured by our own peace in mind and finally by the good pleasure of God. All written or spoken compliments of the world is meaningless.
Therefore, no one has to follow the examples of idols. We need to know our own intelligence and use it with our own experience.
It is good as long as we are happy.

New Addition For This Post

 Abdul-Baha says:

 “Personality is of two kinds. One is the natural or God-given personality which the western thinkers call individuality, the inner aspect of man which is not subject to change; and the other personality is the result of acquired arts, sciences and virtues with which man is decorated. When the God-given virtues are thus adorned, we have character. When the infinite effulgences of God are revealed in the individuality of man, then divine attributes, invisible in the rest of creation, become manifest through him and one man becomes the manifestor of knowledge, that is, divine knowledge is revealed to him; another is the dawning place of power; a third is trustworthy; again, one is faithful, and another is merciful. All these attributes are the characteristics of the unchangeable individuality and are divine in origin.”

(Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 130)
