  1. I think most people, definitionally, are of average intelligence. But compared to those at the top of the intelligence spectrum, yes, most people are very stupid.

  2. Absolutely.
    Watching them walk or drive is enough to seal the deal.

    Violent crime and homicide is down, gun ownership across the board is up, but everyone thinks it’s up.. and everyone thinks ‘assault weapons’are used in every mass shooting..
    They’re actually more often used in self defense than in any kind of crime, hell the reports of ‘home owner with AR shoots x burglars’ is even more common than the mass shooting with a misreported gun clips.
    Oh and the 2 party system, blue team is better than the red team, yet neither actually does anything good for anyone except themselves.

  3. Ahahaha Yeahhh. People don’t seem to understand basic things in ethical way and in intelligence. Sure I can’t speak for everyone not everyone is the same, but damn, I’ve met some interesting people along the way and all I can say is what the fuck are these people people doing… Imagine being so immature and desperate for things and what not. They just don’t see the bigger picture. To sum up…Yeah people are dumb

  4. No. I think most people are pretty average but everyone has their dumb moments. Thing is, no one cares about the normal things you do. They only remember, mock and broadcast the abnormal things you do, whether they’re good or bad, and that’s what ends up in the media. So when everything in the media is the abnormal shit we do as human beings, it makes humanity seem pretty fucking stupid.

  5. I wouldn’t call that stupidity but according to election results all over the world, I’m baffle by the proportion of the population that espouse fascist views.

  6. I don’t know everyone but the people near me sure dont know how to drive, some woman going down a 1 way this morning gave me the finger for honking at her

  7. * I think most people are by definition average.
    * I think that intelligence is very difficult to define and is highly contextual.
    * I think that most people believe they’re above average which is by definition impossible.
    * Finally, I think that the worst person to judge your own intelligence is you. You’re inherently victim to whole range of cognitive biases that will erroneously lead you to believe that you’re smarter then you really are.

  8. Most would be over 50%. I consider myself average and not stupid, so if I assume I am of average intelligence roughly 50% of the population is smarter than I. So clearly most people are not stupid.

  9. Too many of us that are well versed in some arena, and then think that makes us relevant in other areas. Also, many of us think that because we have sympathy for this or that viewpoint people that support a contrary position not worthy of consideration.

    These thought patterns and behaviors, can be seen as stupid.

  10. Absolutely.

    Their candidates are mostly the same level of racist pieces of incompetent shit.
    Shit, people outside the US even fall for it and one would imagine not soaking in this BS would help their objectivity.

  11. Based on evidence gathered at work, in stores and restaurants, while driving, and on Reddit the answer is a resounding yes. People are stupid.
