How to handle stupid people
If you get the feeling someone is too stupid to understand what you're saying, stop talking to them immediately. There's nothing you can say that is going to make a difference anyway. You can't push an idea that is too big to fit into a head.

Trying is like attempting to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and it annoys the pig.

Giving up on a discussion with stupid people is often hard to do, because noone wants to leave stupid people with the last word. But you must simply accept that you lost the battle. You may have had the superior intellectual ammunition, but there was nothing to fire it at. Shut up, and walk away.

Realize that you cannot influence stupid people.

The only people who can influence stupid people, are slightly less stupid people. These people are able to originate thoughts that are too complex for the stupid people to originate themselves, but still simple enough for them to understand when they hear them.

In the same way, the only people you can influence, are those who are slightly stupid compared to you. These people can understand what you are saying, even though they couldn't have thought of it themselves.

Then these people you influenced can dumb down the idea a bit, and tell it to the even more stupid, and so on, until the idea trickles down to the really stupid people. Of course, by then very little remains of your original idea, making the whole exercise seem rather pointless.

But this indirect approach is still the only way you can influence the stupid people at all.

Whenever you are speaking, your intended audience is only those who are slightly stupid compared to you. People even more stupid than this can't understand what you're saying, whereas people smarter than this don't need to.

So, if noone understands what you're saying, just accept the fact you don't have an audience at this time. Shut up, and move along.

Re: How to handle stupid people
Now wait a minute here, because I know for a fact I'm stupid, but yet I am way smarter than like 95% of the people I meet, so are you saying that I should just not talk to people?

Stupid people are easy to spot anyway, as sometimes readily apparent genetics is a dead give away...

It's far funnier to talk with stupid people about things they can not and will not ever be able to understand, but make it seem like what you are talking about would be apparent to a retarded 6 year old. They will frown unhappily as they agree with everything you are saying, and even laugh when you do, although they have no idea what is so funny, and lack the brains to realize that you are laughing at what a dumb-fuck you are talking too....

It's also fun to mess with stupid people who go door to door in an attempt to try to dumb everyone down to their level. For instance, the next time some guy comes to your door and says that "Jesus could sure use your donation today!" Ask him why Jesus is always broke all the time, and isn't it about time he got a decent job with a decent paycheck instead of panhandling people all the time? If the guy can't get a decent paying job in 2000 years, I'm gonna assume any money you give him will be spent on cheap wine and such..." (The look on their faces is always a classic!)

Instead of making encounters with stupid people into a negative experience, try having some fun instead, it's far better to think positive and have a laugh or three!

My advice was more meant for those who tend to get frustrated trying to get a point across to stupid people. Like I tend to do.

 Quoting: Shaun

So do I!

I can't hate people for being stupid. Everyone is stupid compared to someone.

It is myself I get angry with.

When I express an idea which blows completely over the head of someone, I tend to try to explain it better.

This means I'll use more and longer words, longer sentences, and generally flesh out the idea with intricate detail and back it up with a complex web of supporting ideas.

Now, since the person I'm talking to couldn't even follow me when the idea was simple, how am I expecting him or her to be able to follow me now, when it has suddenly become ten times as complex?

The more I explain, the less they understand.

And yet I keep raising the bar for them in pure frustration.

That is stupid.

And that is why I get angry with myself. I should've learned to sense when it's time to shut up by now!

Re: How to handle stupid people
Thank you!

I too have decided to stop talking to stupid people. I have a neighbor who turns every conversation into a political right wing diatribe. Conversation is always about power with her and she says 'provocative' things just to upset me. She is limited in education but yet somehow believes she is ALWAYS correct in her opinions; I would say if I had to compare Betty to an animal it would be a parrot.

It is useless to ever visit with her again because she is so politically/religiously self-absorbed. Also, I really see no profit in fighting with the neighbors. I don't mind other people having opinions or religions but I don't want them shoved down my throat.

It is the aggressive proselytizing of political/religious views that seems to be the 'in thing' today. Stupid people want to convert you to their politics with a fascist need for affirmation. I have a sister who is equally stupid and a daughter who is playing stupid because of her boyfriend. These people are totally self-absorbed. I have noticed they share this trait in common that they all are service-to-self. They don't talk to me, but they talk at me with Ego-speak. I am not allowed to say anything, but I am supposed to listen and agree. If I say anything contrary, I am talked over.

I recently lost my temper with my daughter. I felt sorry about it but she had given me a sermon enough times that I held off and this time I blew. Of course she has no problems in telling me please not to give her any advice; so I respect that and I say nothing to her about her choices. But, of course I am not allowed to have any thoughts of my own. Total compliance is what stupid people demand because anything else is somehow threatening.

Anyway, after much reflecting I realized that I am actually causing pain and suffering to these stupid people by not confirming their world as it appears to them. I am the cause of their pain. Realizing this has helped me to avoid them because I don't want to make them suffer. It appears at times that my very vibration of being is offensive to stupid people.

I believe in karma and I don't want to make anyone suffer. I am trying to live my life by being more consciousness connected to Spirit and following a good path. I leave stupid people alone, but I leave them with God.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 645441

The need for 'compliance' you speak of, is really a need to find 'consensus' in all things, to use a nicer sounding word. It is simply how the minds of stupid people work; they are incapacle of independent thought. Instead of independent thought, their minds perform a kind of filtering process, where all input they've absorbed is mechanically reduced to a common denominator. This is then taken as absolute truth, because "everyone thinks so".

So, why isn't YOUR input accepted then, and thrown into the blender with everything else?

The problem is, you're too late to the party. The filtering process is already finished, and they see no need to do it all over again. They already know how everyone thinks. It's just you who are a freak. Probably one of them racists too. Why listen to anything a filthy racist have to say?

Note that you don't have to talk negatively about race to become a 'racist' in their mind, you just have to be found taking a stand against the consensus view. To stupid people, THAT is the defining characteristic of a racist/antisemite/terrorist or whatever is the consensus derogatory term at the moment. The labels slapped on outsiders do change. A couple of centuries ago, you'd have been declared a 'witch'.

But things are even worse nowadays, because of the global disaster known as 'TV'.

Before the advent of TV, stupid people had to listen to others in their immediate environment to be able to form an opinion. They need input from someone, anyone. You for instance.

But nowadays, they'll get all the input they need from their TV. Then they go and test their new opinion on their neighbor, an whadda ya know, he's thinking the exact same thing!!! This confirms to them that they have successfully found the consensus view. At this point, the case is closed, and the filtering process shut down.

And then you come along, begging to differ. Do you even realize what an anti-social freak you are?!!!

This is the reason your 'vibration of being' is so offensive to them, as you say. But you've already come to the right conclusion: leave them to God.

Cheers!

Re: How to handle stupid people
lmao over this thread

good post, op (and the rest lol)

You could also consider adapting your communication, so there minds are reached. It takes some effort, but than you'll really really qualify as intelligent.

Re: How to handle stupid people
Does this theory of yours work in reverse because I stop reading your post after the first sentence.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 385288

Yes, it does work in reverse. When a stupid person reads something way above his mental reach, it'll all sound like pointless yada yada to him, and he'll stop reading.

But you're doing the right thing, in having the good sense to leave. The really annoying stupid people are those who stick around to argue.

Re: How to handle stupid people
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

I am so sick and tired of sick and tired people and am fed up with the stupid retarded people. Most of them are both.
I can't tell you how many times I have felt this way talking to these dumb fucks and I have had enough!

I only want to converse with people who actually have their whole brains and use them from now on. These are the people at GLP.

Funny you should say so!

I wrote the post after getting frustrated at another web forum. But I went to GLP to vent my frustration. Sure, there are a few dimwits here too, but the EXTREMELY high ceiling here seems to attract intelligent people. GLP doesn't 'discriminate agains the insane', it is stated. As a side effect, it doesn't discriminate against the intelligent either. This is most refreshing!

A flower to GLP!
