Meme on brainpower (or lack thereof)

 

Jason Andrews

This is my favorite meme.

The guy on the left lacks the brainpower to work with abstract ideas, so he only uses trial and error experience to understand the world.

The middle guy is just smart enough that he can use theoretical frameworks. But he knows he’s not the smartest guy out there and he doesn’t want to be considered dumb so he adopts others’ theoretical frameworks. He values them over his own experience.

The guy on the right is smart enough to do both - he understands the theoretical frameworks AND uses trial and error experience.

So the two on the ends reach the same conclusions. They are wise.

But the middle guy is misled by trusting what he has been told over his own experience. He is foolish.

Reliably true for so many situations.
