Smart and Wrong

It has long been believed that the smarter you are, the more astute your judgment. But in many cases, "intelligent" people are more prone to error than the average person. Intelligent and educated people are less likely to learn from their mistakes or take advice from others. And when they do err, they are better able to build elaborate arguments to justify their reasoning, meaning that they become more and more dogmatic in their views. Worse still they appear to have a bigger "bias blind spot" meaning they are less able to recognize the holes in their logic.


More important than intelligence, is the ability to be humble and learn... at all parts in our path of life.


The smarter you are, the more you realize you don't know.
