Sometime I meet really "stupid" people IRL around where I live. I say they're stupid, not because they lack the ability to learn, but b/c they easily buy into the very first thing that they are told and never research things further. The small town where I live in at the moment has a very homogeneous population. They lack experience with divese perspectives outside their own and believe in many misconceptions. This narrow-mindedness is what makes me avoid associating with others, because it takes a substantial amount of my own energy to socialize with them.
