  1. In 1999, psychophysiologists David Dunning and Justin Kruger formulated cognitive bias, according to which: people who have a low level of awareness of something, make erroneous judgments and make bad decisions, but they cannot realize their mistakes.

    First, someone who takes a high risk without having the necessary skills or information to perform these actions is definitely stupid.

    Second, stupidity is a lack of attention to action. Here you can remember those incredible stories about cats left after washing to dry in microwaves.

    Finally, the third category of stupidity was identified as the result of compulsive and poorly controlled behavior.

    By the way, scientists started from the dictum of Charles Darwin “Ignorance often gives rise to confidence, rather than knowledge.” In other words, fools do not see their own narrow-mindedness, which means that they feel quite confident.

    Each of us in any field of activity is a fool. A city dweller looks like a fool when he tries to milk a cow. And a villager looks the same when he can't make up his mind to go on the escalator in the subway. No one is immune from stupidity, but at the same time, you can fight it by often pointing out the person's mistakes. And sometimes stupidity can even have a positive effect. This is called “productive stupidity.”

    This idea was proposed in 2008 by microbiologist Martin Schwartz. In his very famous essay on the importance of stupidity, published in the Journal of Cell Science, he urges people to point out their idiotic actions and mistakes, but to do it leniently.

    In his opinion, it is impossible to condemn stupidity and, moreover, it is necessary to allow people to do rash things, make mistakes and make mistakes in order to encourage access to the “path of discovery”.

    I concluded from this that it is bad to be stupid, but it is inevitable. I believe that wherever I show stupidity, I need to understand the issue a little so that this does not happen again and the stupidity in me decreases.

  2. Absolutely not!

    There are monkeys, hedgehogs, cockroaches and others, and they live quite well.

    And plants and unicellular ones – they generally live without brains.

    And even without a nervous system.

    The human mind is only one way to adapt to the environment.


  3. Is it really good to be stupid? Life is easier for fools, why think for yourself, let them think for you and decide. But “To each his own” was written on the gates of Buchenwald and it is very difficult to argue with this.

  4. If we consider specifically the word G_LUPO_ST, Glu_post. Of course, it is bad in the standard of good and equality, moral_nost. Totalitarianism does not like any bulging, weak forms.

  5. It depends on who, where and when, and what serves what. In trade and services – very good. The more traffic, the higher the turnover, and the higher the tax collection. In production and agriculture – on the contrary, losses. Or when you're married. And if on vacation, then it's not scary. That's where you're supposed to be a little clueless. If everyone is smart, who will be the fool? Who will be appointed? And if you are?

  6. This is definitely not very good. It happens, after all, that because of the stupidity of one person, a whole “people” suffer, and because of the stupidity of another, moldy palaces are built in Gelenzhik.
