  1. A student's academic performance is not always an indicator of their level of education. But we will assume that our excellent student is educated.
    I would say that if a person asks any questions at all, i.e. sincerely shows curiosity, then such a person can hardly be called stupid.
    In addition, if a person's question is stupid in your vision, it does not mean that it is so for the one who asks the question, or for another observer.

    Sorry, I paraphrased the user a bit above.

    Maybe he just asked an elementary question without thinking. In any case, it is always better to specify the terms rather than not specify them.

  2. From this question, we can conclude that you just do not consider yourself to be one of these “smart”people. But do you think that the questions they ask are stupid? So maybe that's what makes them different. If you are not “smart”, then it is impossible to say with confidence that the above opinion on these issues is correct and that the questions are really stupid. But you just can't understand their genius because you're not an excellent student at all. The smart guys themselves do not consider these very questions…. This is so much for reflection

  3. Really smart according to the rule “It's better to ask and be stupid for five minutes than to be stupid all your life”. Such questions form an understanding of the essence of what is happening around you.

    Of course, except for cases when a stupid person has pumped up his erudition a little with articles and books and is trying to check whether he is the most erudite and raise his self-esteem.

  4. The definitions of smart or stupid are subjective. It depends on whether a smart or stupid person gives a rating. The main thing is that a smart person is inquisitive and generally asks at least some questions (there is a cognitive interest), but a stupid person will remain stupid – he is not interested in anything. Asking questions is in any case an indicator of intelligence, not stupidity (although at first glance it seems the opposite – asking questions means that you are not aware).

  5. Because excellent students always strictly follow the “rules”, and are afraid to break them. They act strictly according to the instructions, without showing any independent initiative and creativity. Actually, this is how they became excellent students: do all their homework, read everything they were asked for the summer, etc.�

    I watched two straight-A students who had the highest score in their grades pass the Unified State Exam in history in the same way as I did, a lazy two-year-old who doesn't know and hates history. I didn't learn anything, but I slept in class. But having prepared almost from scratch in just 2 weeks, I passed on a very good score. The score is not too high, and I'm not bragging, it's just amazing to me how excellent students, who also went to tutors for a whole year(!) for the USE, passed it in the same way??? What they did there at the tutor, and how they crammed homework, not understanding anything, is still a mystery to me ))

  6. Smart people become smart by learning about the world and asking questions. That's how they learn. If a person has no questions, he is not interested in everything, then he has stopped developing. Something like that…
