Only stupid people fail to acknowledge their mistakes, shortcomings, and failures. Smart people seek them out, so they can fix them.

This reminds me of a Charles Bukowski quote.

"The problem with the world is that the stupid people are full of confidence and the intelligent people are full of doubt"

I try to live my life by the maxim, "What would Henry Chinaski do?"

Normally that involves having another beer and a bit of a think.

bertrand russell was a 19th century english nobleman and mathematician, famous for his pacifism.

Bukowski was a violent drunk who wrote angry poetry about his diarrhea.

So pretty well the same, yeah

Either way, the original (unknowingly?) describes the Dunning-Kruger-effect - i guess many of you know it. It IS 'curable', but only with subjects willing to learn.
