Sif is highly not
exceptionally intelligent. She relies on her martial prowess and to a lesser extent an understanding of strategy that comes from centuries of experience. Based on the impression I've gotten of Jane's character (in the movie) she is intended
to be somewhat naive yet more mentally gifted than Sif. Her curiosity and intellect are traits which endear her to Thor, qualities rather different from those which drew him to Sif. The fact that Asgardians as a culture, have a better understanding of magic and the like is a moot point.
