I think you all are confusing stupidity with ignorance.


Ignorance:
Lack of knowledge, education, or awareness.
Stupidity: slow of mind : obtuse b : given to unintelligent decisions or acts : acting in an unintelligent or careless manner c : lacking intelligence or reason

To be honest, most people act stupid. Even if you're smart and usually have good judgment, you sometimes have your stupid moments, but stupidity can be cured and so can ignorance; but only if the individual applies themselves.

And no one is born smarter or dumber than another, some people just take the time to educate themselves.


uh oh...i got both ignorance & stupid....

I don't think anyone is truly stupid. Everyone has their weaknesses and strenghths in different areas. Where one lacks wisdom in, one makes up for in another. People can have stupid moments but as a whole I don't think it's fair to label someone stupid.

intelligence is not just measured on IQ tests...there around 1000+ types of intelligence..or rounding it to 8+ according Gardner.
People cant be good with everything, but we're always good at something..

so i dont need to care if im not smart with everything..I focus on the things im good at..
if you will to improve something in yourself ---try your best..BE REALISTIC..dont assume that you will be as good as those naturally gifted if you try too hard (note: we have limits)..comparing will just make you sick

i think its all about the mind :/
you cant force yourself to learn as much as another can do easily and think you cant be smart. But over time, with your willingness and determination you can learn other things... of course at what you're good at instead of something you arent,
everyone has their strengths in things... you just have to find it and be glad

when i was still in school we had a friend who's well.. not really THAT stupid but a bit lacking in common sense. he made up for it by working twice as hard. it's a classic "hard work, beats talent" scenario coz' he eventually ended up in the school's top 10.


This works, lol.

I was born pretty intelligent, actually, but by expecting to be the best while rotting in front of my laptop, I became pretty dumb XD Weird since I'm still the top in my class. XD

And depends on the kind of stupid. Book-stupid and street-stupid are curable, but I don't think ignorant-stupid is.


i never thought that stupid can be classified into so many...lol


Haha, it can. I'm book-smart, street-stupid, and I'm not ignorant, I take everything as is.

If you were both ignorant and stupid then you wouldn't know how to spell...or use a computer.

There's a huge difference between being stupid and acting stupid. You're just acting stupid and quite frankly, it's annoying. So knock it off. All I am seeing is attention whoring your way in this thread, so people will tell you you're not stupid. I'm not biting. Thread is completely pointless. Just by calling yourself stupid makes you one.
