I actually like Caboose's logical reasoning on this.
We have 2 concepts. Knowing ability, and understanding capability. When we somehow learn from osmosis and already know the answers the truth is now outside of our knowing ability. You see this when people discuss many topics where the answer is truly unknown, so many people already seem to have the facts.
Dumb people already know and walk away from whatever information there is, paying it no mind. This is how dumb people work. If we know that we need to actually put in the effort to get the information, and be open to the fact that we are probably wrong we have a possibility for understanding capability.
Dumb people already know they are smart because they already know everything in the world. Just because someone is dumb does not mean that they cannot be whitty. But in the end any dumb person you know you can ask them any question about anything and they have the answer without actually looking it up. Get used to this you will find it throughout your life
