its like anything in life a rollercoaster that goes up and down, if you let it sink you will stay that way (and if you don't want to learn from mistakes or can't some has reasons as to why its hard to be "smarter" or just smarter in other areas in general)
So like even the dumbest person could learn something or know what happends or the answers (like how scooby doo likes to do from time to time)

Here is an example:

Teresa knows there are over one hundred countries on earth. Johnny thinks that Teresa is wrong for some reason because they aren't over one hundred countries there are only seven on earth. Johnny goes to correct Teresa but gets glared at by her and himself corrected.


Is Johnny having a dumb moment or just plain dumb?

Some people have a tendency to say whatever thought flies through their mind without even thinking about it. Sometimes it's hilarious.
Well frequency is usually important in discerning these things, but that is quite the example.
If I could find a way to tell myself that person thought about this seriously, didn't just crawl out of the woods after many years, wasn't suffering some mental illness, and went to compulsory education as a kid. Yes, that person seems willfully ignorant and/or rather stupid.

Edit: I just realized the confusion. Maybe it's something about text that gives certainty to words like "countries" . I hope.



So, Johnny is just plain dumb?

Johnny confused continents somewhere in his mind and spoke faster than he figured out the situation. Just as I posted faster than I figured out the confusion. Plain dumb? I wouldn't go that far. Johnny just didn't grasp all the details or give much thought to asking himself any questions like, "Why would someone say there are THAT many." Johnny and many others could likely use more practice developing their train of thought.

There are no doubt people that I had once mentally regarded as borderline retarded that were only having a 'dumb moment'.

Okay, so Johnny just had a dumb moment that made Teresa think something else?

It is very poor form, though quite common, to judge a person based on a single comment
