stupid versus dumb   Leave a comment

Mama always said ‘stupid is as stupid does’

Forrest Gump said that line many a time in the movie “Forrest Gump” and while I think many people are stupid, I wonder what exactly is the difference between being stupid and being dumb?

My own description is this……….

A person is stupid when they know they are making the wrong choices but keep making them over and over again and expecting a different out come.
Like the drunk who thinks he can handle just one more shot of whiskey, when he can’t even hold himself upright on the bar……and thinking to himself, ‘I’m not an alcoholic!”

a dumb person is someone who doesn’t know any better.
who can’t think through the thought process to realize if they knew better they could figure this out and do it all differently.

that is the difference between someone being stupid and someone being dumb, in my book.

what do you think?
