Defining ‘Stupidity’

Stupidity is not characterized by a lack of knowledge or wisdom, nor is it defined by ignorance, limited mental capabilities or learning differences.

Stupidity is a lack curiosity. It’s coming across the unknown and turning the other way—an active ignorance of the new or different. It’s ignoring truth for the sake of simplicity.

Stupidity isn’t being wrong. It’s not trying to be right.
