combination of both, but if exclusively either, I would say savvy wins.

Yes- I would generally agree. Savvy is important, but if you don't have sufficent intelligence to interpret it and process it then you can't use your "Savvy" very well!

I feel it's a healthy balance of both.  I have worked with people who are off the scale when it comes to IQ, but many of them were as dumb as a box of rocks when it came to ordinary every day common sense.
