There’s all kinds of smarts. Book smarts and people smarts and street smarts and fashion smarts. The more you say the word ‘smarts’ the dumber it sounds.
It’s possible to be accomplished and inept, intelligent and stupid, perceptive and obtuse, all at the same time.
So I guess the smartest people I know are probably the ones who realize exactly how unsmart they really are.
And they’re all smart enough to keep the fact of their ignorance to themselves and well hidden.
