Albert Einstein once said, “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I am not sure about the universe.” Taking the base of this quote, this article looks at how infinite stupidity is? Was Einstein correct in his assumption?
1. Everyone can act with stupidity:
People who have been judged as rational and intelligent can turn out to be stupid at various points in their lives. For example, there is an intelligent lawyer. He knows how to win court cases and he is unbeatable. When it comes to friends, he sometimes has a weakness or Achilles’ heel. They use him as a hot timali.
2. Mistakes do happen:
People do make mistakes. These mistakes are avoidable and could easily be averted. For example, an individual was interested in a girl who he actually loved. The girl was married and was going for her ph.d. You may be academically successful and intelligent, but frankly other things you suck at, specifically social skills. The guy she was cheating with continued the fling for 3 years. He claims he cannot stand stupidity. Sometimes it is lurking at your doorstep.
3. Blind Eye:
Everyone probably has gone through this at least once in their lifetime. We turn a blind eye and trust someone. It hurts when they stab you in the back when you least expect it. The motto here is to keep both eyes open and to keep friends close, enemies closer.
4. Soft Spot:
Everyone also has a soft spot which is a source of human stupidity. It hits everyone when they least expect it. The worst is when it comes from a friend or family member.
5. Causing someone a loss:
A stupid person is a person who causes a loss to someone else or to a group of persons while he/she is developing no gain and perhaps even experiencing losses. This is actually the 3rd of 5 laws of stupidity written by Carlo Cipollo.
