they are rewarded with being patriots, favored by God and know without a doubt they are better than others. They also get instant friends who believe the same.

to figure out, just how stupid you are. It’s like finding out one day, and thinking, wow! I didn’t know, that I didn’t know, how desperately stupid I didn’t 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."

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

The tools you require to know whether you are good or bad at something are the same tools to be good at something
