The less people know, the more stubbornly they know it. The intelligent person hesitates, ponders, wavers. The unintelligent never wavers, never hesitates. Where the wise will whisper, the fool simply declares from the housetops. – Osho
I’ve never read any of Osho’s books. The topics he chooses to write about don’t interest me, but I stumbled across this quote from him recently and really liked it.
I came down with a doozy of a cold over the weekend, so my brain is foggy. These are the things I think about when the fog lifts temporarily:
Why does this seem to be so common?
Is it intelligence or education that makes people more willing to admit what they don’t know?
Will we ever find a cure for the Dunning-Kruger effect?
What do you think?
