  1. CLARIFICATION – a fairly intelligent person is well aware that there are people smarter than him in some respects; this is in fact, but in public, in words, he rarely admits it for practical reasons of market and competitive considerations.

  2. This” show-off “ goes from a child's forgivable age and often remains until a very old age.

    The brilliant philosopher Socrates said of himself, ” I know that I don't know anything (colloquially, I'm a fool).” This is said in comparison with absolute knowledge.



    Actions designed for an external, ostentatious effect, in order to make a favorable impression.

    “Making a show”

  3. Because this is normal from the point of view of protecting the psyche. That is, a person with normal self-esteem will not really think about himself that he is stupid.

    It's one thing to think about it, but another thing to talk about it.

    If a person constantly praises himself / herself and calls himself / herself smart, then it is worth considering the option of increased self – esteem/intellectuality/psycho-and sociopathy or hyper-compensated low self-esteem (it happens with CPTSD).

    If not constantly, but praises himself – this is the norm, sometimes bragging is not bad and even useful.

    If he just calls everyone stupid, he is a traumatized person/angry/shaken up by life or just offended.

    If he calls himself stupid, but doesn't really think so, he wants to be pitied/”stroked”/loved.

    If he considers himself stupid, he has extremely low self-esteem/mood disorder (depression, bipolar disorder, etc.).

  4. Ostentation/propaganda/disinformation plays a huge role in the life of countries and people – they achieve considerable success on this path with a skillful approach. This is not stupidity, but cunning.

  5. Well, why is it better, they just don't consider themselves worse than others. Here there is a certain ritual, so everyone considers themselves to be in line with the norm, if they do not say something like this: “ivonoshny, ieshny”.

    A certain set of mandatory knowledge is like a strict suit prescribed for a certain communication.

    As the classic said:”I don't think I'm smarter than others, but just – not more stupid.”

    Yes, if everyone starts admitting that they are ignorant, then who and on whom will they put their hopes?

  6. In fact, why am I so brilliant at noticing other people's sins, but blind and deaf to my own?

    Why is it so much easier to be a talented viewer than a talented author or performer?

    Here's something about the need for an outside view. About the development of awareness, that is, the ability to see the “picture” as a whole.

    Our animal nature, our child's initial perception is well able to know and understand itself, but understanding ourselves within the system as a part of it is already a matter of development.

    So, a person simply does not know how to see himself from the outside. If I saw it, I'd be horrified.

    So there is a displacement of unpleasant, and even deadly information. This is such a defense mechanism. Success is associated with the ability to focus on yourself, not to consider your image through the eyes of others. That is, considering yourself better-smarter than others-is the downside, the cost of search activity.

  7. Here, all the same principle: “Your shirt is closer to the body!” Only as you get closer to another person, as you open up their “depths”, the opinion about this person changes. A person who does not consider himself “smarter than others” at all is a person who reads a lot and knows the opinions of others on the topic that interests you in short order.

  8. A person often gives out wishful thinking with a high level of ambition. Everything is based on the natural desire for dominance. To ensure your survival, you need to be better than others and this is natural selection. Those who can't fulfill this need in real life go to social networks and become haters, for example. A truly intelligent person will not prove anything to anyone, because it is not necessary. The strong do not shout that they will defeat the weak, everyone already sees it.

  9. Because everything is based on a person's feelings. If the self-esteem is healthy, the person assumes that someone knows more and learns further, but if the person always strives to prove something and has a correspondingly low self-esteem, then he will have a desire to always win and dominate and always compete, even in conversation with friends. Well, here the question naturally arises, how can such a person come to terms with the fact that he knows something worse? Plus, this is the world right now-endless competition

  10. Well I won't say that everyone�

    just yesterday I read that the person who just knows little – little doubts it, because impersonating knowing without thinking that may be different
    and the one who knows a lot, faced with the understanding that everything can be disproved, and there are many hypotheses, evidence, and therefore begins to question , saying he did not know

  11. _in
    the first – not everyone and not everyone else

    Secondly, this syndrome is inherent in those who are either stupid or simply naive because of egocentrism.

  12. In answering this question, I accordingly rely on my own Personal understanding of this process. Answer: Not exactly, or rather not at all. We are all so and so different, individual, unique-unique, but we all have something in common, each of us “all” is an individual, unique, unique Person. Therefore, everyone has their own Personal opinion on certain issues. Based, developed, transformed on their own Personal knowledge, understandings, conclusions, realizations, on their own Personal Life experience. And people tend not only to share their accumulated knowledge, experience, Good-Spiritual “Wealth”. But also to defend “it” to protect, to protect in one or another available ways and techniques – for everyone individually. And sometimes “this” can be mistakenly perceived as what he is – “a person considers himself smarter than others.” In turn, each such perception is also individual, each Person has his own Personal, and sometimes erroneous. Just respect the opinions of others – they do not consider themselves smarter than others, it's just that a person tends to share information – life experience. This is just my opinion and that's all. I sincerely wish YOU ALL Health, Love, Happiness and all the best ! Peace To Our Home !

  13. The Lord has bestowed the greatest amount of intelligence on people. None of them complain about its lack. I don't remember who said it, but it was venomous and accurate. I know I don't know anything. Socrates.

  14. Such self-assessment is not the result of analytical work. It is based on empirical experience and the need to have an inflated level of self-esteem. I can handle most of the tasks that arise in front of me, so I'm smart. It is not a fact that another person would have coped better with my particular problem, since he did not live my life. and the number of criteria for intelligence or stupidity is so large and diverse that such statements are often unsubstantiated.

    80% of drivers believe that they drive a car better than half of all those sitting behind the wheel. But all 90+% of people consider themselves smarter than half of the people in the world. Although only those who believe that their mental abilities meet the requirements of about half of all people in the world are really smart. They have an adequate self-assessment based on a probabilistic approach.

  15. Because in a normal situation, he understands his own life better than anyone else. And transfers this understanding to the whole world. They say that if I know my own life better than anyone else, then I know everything else too.

    But this continues exactly as long as the person has not reached a dead end in his life. Here, self-esteem drops sharply, sometimes to the diametrically opposite.

  16. A person is an idea. An idea can only take place against the background of ideas that contrast with it. A person feels more elevated by belittling other people.

  17. Is it everyone?Yes, in some ways we can consider ourselves an expert, an expert, but only if we have some life experience behind us.Not many who have lived much know much, but those who go far know much.All reciprocate and find what you are looking for.

  18. Because Socrates are infrequent. And even those close to him in intelligence-too. Only he could say ,” I only know that I don't know anything.” Fools think that no one knows more than they do

  19. “People usually assume that they know something, but it turns out that they don't know anything. Thus it turns out that, knowing about my ignorance, I know more than everyone else, he argued.” (c) Socrates.

    This saying has a more popular form: “the more I know, the less I know.”

    I think that every person simultaneously with his development begins to notice that he still does not know too much. And with each step forward, even greater expanses of the unknown open up. No great scientist or just a person with a huge level of intelligence will ever say that he is smarter than another(a salesman in a store, for example), because understanding and acceptance of other personalities is born, and this stupid need for self-affirmation disappears. (“I'm smarter than you” sounds like a kindergarten kid saying it to another kid.)

    And,by the way, very rarely do people put themselves in the shoes of others. Because for each of us, the world exists only as we see it,so why change anything,why would I, the crown of creation, put myself in someone else's shoes?(it was funny)Hence, egocentrism appears.
