How to distinguish a smart person from a dumb one by external signs

And because if a stupid person is guided in his life by rules, traditions, and other things, life is “like everyone else. Like, as “folk wisdom” prescribes.

The smart person, even in simple situations and events of life, literally goes his own way. That is, “steps on his own rake”, “makes his own bumps”.

For he has a critical view of everything and everyone, and doubts everything.

Moreover, he is often confident in the power of his mind. Which will allow him, and “to make it”, and “to build everyone”, and to come to success.

But, more often than not, the environment of an intelligent person puts powerful barriers for him. Including through his stupidity. That they, these barriers, prove to be irresistible.

Or rather, they are partially impassable for an intelligent person. Because, as a rule, he still “adapts to life” – lives it more or less decently and tolerably.

The problem of understanding oneself as a dumb, stupid or smart person

A stupid, stupid person cannot recognize himself as such a priori. For he lacks self-criticism and doubts as such. And concerning himself in particular.

Besides, as a rule, he has an implicit or explicit overestimation of himself and exaggerated conceit.

An intelligent person, evaluating himself in some time period of his life (as a rule, his past), analyzing himself, the events of his life.

He can recognize himself as dumb, stupid, a fool, an idiot, and so on.

For an intelligent person is self-critical, doubting everything. And is not committed to dogmas, in assessing the reality around him. Including himself.

On the thinking and communication of stupid, dumb people and an intelligent person

Stupid people’s thinking is concrete and concrete, while an intelligent person’s is abstract and figurative.

Of course, at the everyday level, the communication of smart and dumb people finds points of contact.

When concrete-subject thinking is at work. They can understand each other.

Communication of a stupid person can be productive and positive ONLY with an even more stupid person. For his stupidity and stupidity does not allow him to understand an intelligent person.

Even if he is clever only in relation to him, the stupid one.

A clever man, of course, will always find points of contact and understanding with one like himself.

It should be noted that, at everyday life, as a rule, clever people find common ground with stupid and dumb people.

Misunderstandings and contradictions arise when a certain level of abstraction in communication is necessary.

That is, when the conversation turns, literally, to philosophical topics.

The fact is that a stupid, dumb person has a very low threshold for creating abstract images and thoughts.

His thinking is, as already mentioned: object-concrete.

Whereas, an intelligent person is capable of thinking with abstract images and thoughts. And appeal to them in communication. Distracted from their object-concrete embodiment in reality.

Stupid, stupid people, smart people. Who do you think you are? And why? What can you add or ask about the subject?
