Ignorance is not measured by how little we knows, but how much we falsely think we know. In this case, a doctor (one with Ph.D) who think he/she knows everything is more ignorant than a peasant who admit he/she knows nothing.

Ignorance = Amount of knowledge we falsely thinks we have – Actually amount of knowledge we have.

Very true. Some people think they know everything and ignore everything else. Good point 🙂

I completely agree. The older I get, the more I realize how little I know.

@Flameheart & Janene,
Thanks! It is true that the older we get, the more we realize this humble fact.

I agree, yunyi. I think one should always be suspicious of what one “knows,” especially when it involves being critical or judgmental of others.

np, i like how you added on this topic. a good reminder.

I agree to this. When we think we understand, our ignorance is complete.
