The differences between a genius and an idiot-

Geniuses require evidence.

Idiots require belief.

Geniuses will change their opinion with evidence.

Idiots maintain their opinion in spite of evidence.

Geniuses will maintain their evidence-based opinion even if it is not popular.

Idiots will change their mind because they are TOLD a different idea is popular.

If a genius says, “I don’t know” it will be followed by “But I will find out.”

If an idiot says, “I don’t know”, that is the totality of their statement.

A genius RARELY says, “I don’t care.”

Idiots take pride in not caring.
