Is karma endowed with intelligence? How can karma judge if you deserve a bad reincarnation or a good reincarnation?

The following is what Bhagwan Ramana Maharshi states to answer your question in his poetic work Upadesa Saram:

கன்மம் பலன் தரல் கர்த்தனது ஆணையால்
கன்மம் கடவுளோ உந்தீபற
கன்மம் சடமதாம் உந்தீபற

Kanmam palan tharal kartthanathu aaNaiyaal
Kanmam kadavuLO untheepaRa
Kanmam jadapathaam untheepaRa

Meaning: “Karma is just jata — insentient. Do you think it is God?! Karma’s fruits become effective only by the will of God.”

This concept had been endorsed in the distant past by both Shankaracharya and Ramanujacharya.
