4. Imagine that you are so stupid, that you are too stupid

to figure out, just how stupid you are. Itís like finding out one day, and thinking, wow! I didnít know, that I didnít know, how desperately stupid I didnít know I was. And was I ever stupid.

10. Ignorance is the first link in the chain, followed by Desire

Ignorance is the first link in the chain, followed by Desire.

Together the two build a vast edifice of self-identity and the world around us.
Self-identity we all have, the wise build their identity on universal truth rather than the swamps of ignorance and shifting sands of desires.

7. "Dysrationalia" may be a better term

"Dysrationalia is defined as the inability to think and behave rationally despite adequate intelligence.[1] It is a concept in educational psychology and is not a clinical disorder such as a thought disorder. Dysrationalia can be a resource to help explain why smart people fall for Ponzi schemes and other fraudulent encounters."

8. Invariably, they believe they are more intelligent than everyone else

Not only do they not comprehend their own ignorance - they believe they are highly intelligent.
