What are some |stoopid| things smart people do?
^-^ vs ^-^
hahah.. this post is dedicated to all of you little minionz ,some wisdom ups for now by declaring 10 facts that trick your uber-complicated relation with existence.
1. Ignoring the importance of design and style –When the iPod originally came out, technical people complained about its lack of features and perceived high price (“ooh, who cares about another MP3 player; I can go buy one at Best Buy for $50.”) In the meantime, it was so cool and easy to use that normal people went out in droves to buy it.

2. Following the pack Many smart people often seem to be followers, probably because they grow up spending so much time pleasing others via academic and extracurricular achievement that they never figure out what they really like to work on or try anything unique. Smart people from top schools tend to flock into the same few elite fields, as they try to keep on achieving what other people think they should achieve, rather than figuring out whatever it is they intrinsically want to do.

Some smart people focus exclusively on their narrow area of interest and never realize that everything important in life is accomplished through other people. They never try to improve their social skills, learn to network, or self-promote, and often denigrate people who excel in these areas. If you are already a good engineer, you are going to get 10x the return on time spent improving how you relate to other people compared to learning the next cool tool.

Many smart people act as if being right trumps all else, and go around bluntly letting people know when they are wrong, as if this will somehow endear others to them. They also believe that they can change other people’s minds through argument and facts, ignoring how emotional and irrational people actually are when it comes to making decisions or adopting beliefs.

Smart people sometimes think that just because they are expert in their field, they are automatically qualified in areas about which they know nothing. For instance, doctors have a reputation as being bad investors.
