  1. Smart people see their shortcomings perfectly, stupid people don't see it, and, worse, many of their shortcomings are interpreted as advantages.

    This is a very serious development deadlock.

  2. More often yes than no. But they don't recognize it. And this is one of the features of stupidity. Knowing the truth and admitting it, for a fool, is not the same thing.

    For a fool, the mind is not the ability to think, but a certain rating parameter. Therefore, the (non -) awareness of their stupidity largely depends on the assessment of others.

    And another aspect of the question is as follows. A person who is blind from birth knows that he is blind, but he does not know what it is like to be sighted. Similarly, a fool seeks to use the abilities of the intelligent, but does not understand what they are.

    But the most interesting thing is that the mind begins with self-awareness. So when a fool starts thinking about his own mind-stupidity, he has a chance to become smarter.

  3. No. And this is a very interesting paradox: the smarter a person is, the more ignorant and, if you will, stupid they think they are. Socrates also said, ” I only know what I don't know, but others don't know that either.”

    Indeed, the more knowledge we gain, the wider the range of things we don't know about becomes. Therefore, it turns out that a barber in Sarapul has a higher opinion of his intellectual abilities than a sociology teacher at Moscow State University.

  4. I'll just leave a quote from Einstein here:�

    We're all geniuses. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its entire life thinking itself a fool.

  5. Such questions are usually answered with the following “Who do you think is a stupid person? Where is the boundary between intelligence and stupidity? By what quality can you say that [this] person is stupid, and [that] is more or less intelligent? This is your assessment, which does not reflect what kind of person really is.”
    Maybe here you will find the answer to the question:
