They are easy to find. Just look for the ones that call people names. ;)

That's a bit overgeneralizing, don't you think? To say that everyone who's adamant about their opinions are stupid?

Side: Wait..., what? No!!!

It sounds like you are adamant about your opinion ;)

To say that stupid people are confident is not the same as saying confident people are stupid.

I agree with you on many here but do I qualify as this?

The flip side of the Dunning-Kruger effect is that highly intelligent people are overconfident in the ability of others.

Side: True.

Smart people state their preference clearly. Then they plan for the inevitable outcome when people chose a different path ;)

Side: True.

You may also observe this in yourself when you’re new to a job. At first you don’t know anything and you know it. Then you get the hang of it and wish to do everything because now you expect you can. Over time you realize there’s still a lot to learn. In the end you can do all relevant tasks but it’s just your work, you don’t feel cocky and it’s nothing to ask for help.

Side: True.

ROTFFLMMFAO !!!!! The Dummy wrote this ? -That I am the most important person to me. Fuck all the haters, fuck all those who will convince themselves they are good for you but emotionally drain you with their issues. Fuck it all, selfishness is the only way in life but that doesn't mean you need to be unkind to those who are kind to you.

Your above response is in direct contradiction of what you wrote as a response !!!!!! LMMFAO

As bad as anything is that to the truly ignorant while convinced of their own brilliance, will interpret other's real knowledge on a given subject, as bias in itself.

I think this may be the essence of anti-intellectualism.

If I may paraphrase George Carlin- I don't have his books in front of me for the quote to be exact- one of the main problems in this world is that all of the smart people are full of doubt and all of the stupid people are full of confidence.
