'Smart people don't learn... because they have too much invested in proving what they know and avoiding being seen as not knowing.' Chris Agyris

well i think this quote is right. I think that people are being ignorant because they think theyre smart.In the other hand a person that is smart is willing to be open minded and learn more.They dont act as if they already know everything because in reality they dont know everything. For example a person who is constantly judging another is not being open minded because they think they know a certain person when in reality they dont know anything.If you were really smart you would take time to get to know that person and not judge its book by its cover.I think that people are acting ignorant when they think they know whats going on in other peoples life,they should fix theirs then worry about someone else.I believe that people should just be open minded and not have negative thoughts about learning something new.

smart people do learn in order to get more information. people that think they know everything are the ones that don't learn they will try to show that they know everything but most of the time there wrong. in order to be smart you have to keep learning new information every day to stay smart

Uhhh, I dunno what this means... seriously, I have no clue. It's basically saying that smart people don't learn because they're already smart. They are too busy proving what they learn... Wait.... I'm confused. Ugh.

I disagree because yes smart people prove themselves but they also learn so they can improve their skills and knowledge. I think it may be the boastful smart people who don't learn much because they are mostly trying to prove their point and sometimes not listen to those who know more than them. To sum it all up, whether you're a boastful smart person or just smart eventually you'll have to learn something new because each year something new is created where you have to learn how to work it.

In my opinion there is no such thing as smart and dumb because Mr. Helenius made a convincing statement about being smart and dumb. He said there is no such thing as smart and dumb. Everyone has the same opportunity in learning but it all depends all on the person. If they do want to learn, they will learn if they are not lazy. If a person is lazy and doesn't care they probably won't learn. Learning may come easier to others so the other person who struggles to learn, has to just be more dedicated.

i think this quote is true because if there is a sma rt person who is non sholeont about there learning material and a person who is not not neccessaraly dumb but is open mindd to make new nueral connections the smart person wo uld act cocky as if they know the required material even if they stuck on somthing and the opened minded person will be willing to learn and the so called "smart" person is to cocky to be taught so they wont learn

No that is not true because smart people want to learn more to build up their intelligence to make them smarter even thoug they are smart. But sometimes they have to brag about it and think that they are better than everybody but there not. So Im just saying that smart people are just studying so they can build there vocabulary up and their intelligence up.

This quote means that "smart people" don't learn because they are to proud to admit they need to learn new things and don't admit when they make a mistake. They try to advoid being seen making a mistake and admit they don't know the subject. I don't agree with this quote because there aren't "smart" or "dumb" people. People who are called "smart" are called smart because they are willing to learn. They aren't afraid to make mistakes. That is why they considered or called "smart" because they make an effort to learn.

i dont agree with this statement because only if someone smart is trying to prove something doesnt mean there not going to learn new things they still learn because they try to better there skill n stuff like that so i mean there still learning. eveyone learns no matter what. XD

well i disagree with this because what i learned in english class is that there is no smart and dumb. there is only people that have more knoledge than others but someday they will be at the same level. another thing is that some people that think they are smart start to rub in other people face because they are supposably smarter than and and the other person is stupid. so instead of helping the person that needs help they just make them feel worse. also there is always kowledge out there so no 1 can possably know everything. so that were th ephrase come from there is no smart or dumb in life.

i think this quote is true because people who are smart really smmart dont look down on people and tell them your dumb but like if u are smart for like a day because you said the right answer to the qustion and they think their all smart for that short period of time they start to look down on people even no they were smart for a day


but really i dont think their is a smart or dumb people i look at people some have the question to answers and some dont.

Well I think this quote is right because smart people do learn even. I think they still want to learn more because they want to go college and have a good career.Also smart people do prove themselves smart and they do learn in order to get information. I also think that smart people think they know almost everything and also they dont want to be proven wrong when another person says the right thing
Well thats what I think!!!!

I agree with the part smart people think they know everything and avoid being seen as not knowing because that is true. And i disagree with the part smart people dont learn now that is not true because nobody can not learn and still know everything becuase it order to know everything you need to learn things thats how you get information by learning.

Blogger ** WENDY** said...

Well I don’t think that this quote is necessarily true for 2 reasons. The first one is because everyone is smart in their own way. Some people are smart in certain subjects. Not everyone knows how to do everything in every subject. There is no smart or dumb. There is just people who try more than others and get things better than others. The words smart and dumb do not have any meaning. All that they are are labels that people put on others who don’t try as hard as the "smart" people. The second reason why I say this is because I know a lot of people who are "smart" and doing well in their classes but they don’t show it off. They don’t try to prove to everyone that they are smart. All they do is try their best and if people notice, they really don’t care. But there are some people like that. They are to busy trying to prove to people how smart they are that they don’t learn a lot. They are ignorant and all they want to do is prove to everyone that they are the best. Those are the people that I would call dumb.

I disagree because to be smart you have to have learned something in order to have passed all your test/and Quizes. i can garenty you that if you can't pass you test and guizes than your grdes will probably DROP, which means your not"smart".So you must have good grades to be considered "smart".
Which must mean that you have had to have learned something weather it's learning 1.2.3 or the abc.

That is true... because when your smart you think your smart and you think you know everything which is not true.. noone is amart or dumb... its just lazyness... WHen you think you are smart you think you know everything so you wouldnt like to be seen not knowing something because that will make you look dumb.. which der is no dumb or smart... You determine on how you do.... its lazy ness if u say ur dumb in school if your not lazy and you payt attention and do everything you are suppose to you wil be "SMART" but if you don't you'll think your "DUMB" which is not true... just do everything you go to do you'l be successfull...

WELL I BELEIVE ITS TRUE BECAUSE PEOPLE JUST TALK ABOUT WHAT THEY KNOW ALREADY INSTEAD OF LEARNING NEW THINGS AND BIENG SMARTER TOWARDS NEW THINGS. NOT JUST STUCK ON ONE SUBJECT OR TOPIC BECAUSE YOUR SCARED TO BE SEEN AS DUMB OR NOT AS INTELLEGENT. THEY MIGHT SEE THIESELFS AS SMART THEREFORE THEY DON'T NEED TO LEARN ANYMORE, BUT REALLY THEY'RE SO MUCH YOU DON'T KNOW THAT YOU HAVEN'T LEARNED. SO ATLEAST TRY AND IF YOUR NOT UP TO DATE ON IT THEN YOU NEED MORE LEARNING TO DO..
THATS WHAT I BELIEVE.

Yes I believe that because a smart person thinks they are all extra smarrt. THey feel that they know everything.If they needed to learn then it makes them feel less smart. THey dont want to feel less smart.THey like being the smartest all the time. If they needed to learn somethingt then the person teaching them would be smart.A Smart person does not want to be seen not knowing. They would no longer be as smart if they needed to learn something.

I agree with this quote because smart people do try to prove how smart they are most of the time. Smart people usually try to improve their skills in things so it makes them seem even smarter.I also kind of disagree because not all smart people aren't boastful about being smart. Some smart people do actually learn and put in alot of effort in their work. Smart people do learn because eventhough their so called smart every one learns something. I think it all depends on the person because everyone is different.

I disagree because their is no such thing as smart or dumb. It all depends of you if you want to learn or no. Their is some people that think their smart but sometimes their the dumb ones because instead of helping others that need help they dont help them, so that makes them look more dumb.Some people are smart because of of their knowledge but other people could be smrt like them only if they put effort.

I think that that is true because a so called smart person always wants people to think that they're smart and not stupid. Because some people don't like to be called dumb or stupid because it lowers their self esteem so to be called smart is important to them.

I think thats not true cause smart people is allways interested in learning new stuff. So I think no body is too smart. And those people need to learn more thinks every day because if they new everything they will be perfect and no body is perfect not even god;.So in order to learn you need to put attention to the school and try to get as much imformations as you can.

well i think that this quote is right. My opinion is that there is no such thing as smart, or dumb because i think any one can be learn if they want to. Every time you learn something new or you have already knew your neural connections gets stronger ot you get a new one. Smart kids as people says, has a sronger neural connection, and dumb kids are barely getting neurtal connections but every one has neurtal connection and thats what makes every one smart.

Well I think that, that quote is a false statement. I think that, that quote is false because if a person is really smart they would be able to learn more to be able to get greater at what there great at. It is up to that person to realize they are capable of being able to do many things. Learning just happens to be one of the main priorities. That is why I feel that, that statement is false.

I THINK THAT THIS QUOTE CAN HELP OTHERS BY PUTTING WHAT THEY ARE DOING IN PERCPECTIVE AND MAKE PEOPLE STAY FOCUSE OF THE TRUE THING U R TRYING TO DO AND NOT GET DISTRACTED AND SIDE TRACKED.

I think jthta smart people do learn because a smart person has to have more knowledge and the only way to get knowledge is by learning new things. In other words smart people always want to be seen as smart and not dumb. Even though smart and dumb do not exist. So yea i do not agree with this quote.

'Smart people don't learn... because they have too much invested in proving what they know and avoiding being seen as not knowing.' Chris Agyris

I
think
that
smart
people
dont
learn
because
they
are
afraid
that
they
will
fail.
I
think
most
of
the
time
people
dont
look
for
new
things
to
do
because
a
lot
of
peopledont
want
to
find
out
they
are
bad
at
somthing
they
only
look
at
the
good
things.
That
is
what
I
think.

I agree with this qoute because it is true some smart people dont want to be viewed as "dumb" and they dont learn and thy are to busy proving they are smart. Another thing is that they dont want to feel that they are not that smart and they just want to prove that they are smart and if somone would tell them that they are smater than them than they would just want to keep proving that they are smart so yea.

I think that what this person is trying to prove is that "smart" people think that they are very smart and they know everything so they think that they dont need to learn anything more because they know everything and they try to act like they know everything so that they look smart even though sometimes they dont know everything.

I think this statement is true because so called smart people are scared to think out of the box because they are scared people are going to call them dumb the people who arent scared to be called bumb always have the fresh new ideas because they arent scared to be called dumd or wierd.

I diagree because not all advance people just stop at knowing what they know most people want to be push farer or they will go get what is needed for there education but when it comes to not knowing something they work it out into they understand but at the same time people can try to act super smart and think they better all the time and dont really want to know something else so they avoid the whole situation because they think the know everything and they scared of not knowing

I agree and disagree with this statement. First I agree with this statement becuase its true that smart people are always trying to be what other people expect them to be and have no time for social and active things. And sometimes smart people are ignorant because they think they are better than other people because of what there gpa is. I also disagree with this statement because not all smart people are ignorant and catty because some people who are smarter than others are really cool people to hang around. Its just all on your personality and how you present yourself.

Smart people dont learn because they dont want to learn all they want to do is prove everyone is wrong and they are right. Also they think they know everything they think that they are smart and no one is they are just about themself. They avoid that they are sometimes wrong that they dont always knnow eventhing also they dont want to listen to any one they just listen to they self.

Well,I think part of the quote is true because smart people do be focused on trying to prove what they already know,but they still learn becuz if they didn't learn, then they wouldn't know what they already know.They do avoid being seen as not knowing,but as they are trying to cover up what they don't know,they are learning it.But actually,there is no smart and dumb.Some people just don't catch on and understand stuff as fastas others.

That quoet means that the reason why "smart people don't learn" is because thye have already learned so much and has a repertation of being smart, they just don't want that rep. to be gone. They also feel that they already learned so much that they feel that they are ready for the real world. but we all know at the end, they are the ones who are unprepared.

Bassically this guy is saying that people who know one material well are too conceaded to try to learn anything else. I strongly disagree with this, because if somone is truely smart, they'll master a subject and try to move on onto something else, smart doesn't mean you undrdtand everything, it just means you think ahead, and are ready.

well i guess that is true because if you claim your so smart and there is nothing left for you to learn but that is not true i dont think that smart people dont learn its just that there minds trick them into thinking that they have reached the maximum of knowledge but knowledge is infinite there is nothing that cant be learned, if you dont know something backwards,upside down, and blind folded you still have a long way to go.

i disagree because these "smart" people don't learn because all they care about is proving they are smart by knowing every single answer to every single question. Are they really smart? No. They are ignorant. Now-a-days , there really isn't such thing as "smart" or "stupid", it's whether you know something or not. If you didn't know something, it doesn't make you stupid. And if you knew something and someone else didn't, it doesn't make you smart.

I do kind of believe this in a way beacause smart people don't really learn because they already know what they need to know. also because most of the time thge smart people are called "nerds" which i don't believe is a good term because that makes them be in shame. "Nerds" tend to hide because they are picked on. so yes i kind of agaree with thgis quote somewhat.

I disagree with this quote...1st there is no such thing as smart...2nd "smart" people learn AS MUCH AS THEY CAN why would they be trying to improve on they're knowledge because if they were'nt they wouldn't really be considered "smart".If this was the case they would stay on they're like a low level and just be really great at what they know. Example..If a "smart" person were to all of a sudden become smart in they're 8th grade year and all of they're 9th or 10th grade year they're investing or watever on what they already know then they would just stay at that 8th grade level and well they just wouldn't be able to go to college going at that rate....soo the person that CHRIS AGYRIS is speaking about isnt really to much of a person that anyone would consider "SMART"

When I read this quote, I could see that Chris is as ignorant as the quote. Some people do believe that they know everything and the truth is that they don't. They have there information all wrong and just because it sounds logical to them, they think that it has to be real. I really don't like ignorant people because they annoy me. They think they know everything and they are so sure of what they are saying is true. If you correct them, they act as if you are the stupid one and say that you are ignorant. If you were smart, you wouldn't not learn. You actually are willing to let ideas and other thoughts go into your head and decide for yourself if it is true or not.

Well I think this qoute just means that some people who are supposedly smart hide the truth. Even though there isn't such a thing as smart or stupid, I think it means that people don't want to be seen as something else. Some people who have an enhanced thought process may be good in school but ognorant to the outside world. With that, they try to hide the truth of what they reaally are which is ignorant. An actual defined smart person would be someone who knows what to do most of the time. An intelligent person is someone who is open-minded and understands the outside world. There is a difference between the two and that's why smart people try to hide the truth that they are not intelligent. In my opinion, i am a little of both but sometimes I may not understand some of the outside world. Smart people are afraid of showing the truth that are not what they seem to be. They keep everything inside and are never actually honest with themselves. They are desperate people that really try to hide the truth and smart people are one of them.

i agree with this quote because all smart and dumb is that they are labels and just words that are used to either compliment or make fun of people. Smart to me is just a person that tries hard to succeed and the other person that yoou would call dumb is also smart but they just dont try hard to succeed. Also noone knows everything people are constantly learning. Teachers and grownups still learn stuff from their own students. so know one is smart. But their are people who think they knoe everything and dont even try anymore but to me thats a lazy person or you might call them dumb because they dont try at all. A smart person might be getting "F"s or "D"s but they are trying hard to succeed but they just dont understand the subject. As long as you try you are smart but if your lazy and dont try anything your just dumb. Its not a bad thing but you just have to try harder. so i do agree with the quote. In some ways but in others i disagree.

thats not true because thats why they are called smart because they put into sum effort in to it.and they tryed there hardest at it.and they have to give as much effort as they could and order to succed at it.thats why vthey are aslo called smart because they learn what they need to know in order to get a passing grade at it.and they dont act like they know everything they just try it if they dont know how to do it.

Some people who they think that are smart saying things that dosen't have any sense they act like they are the smartest thing in the world and they dont.But in the other way the persons who are smart have good grades,they learn from his/her teachers,they always are trying to be someone in the future and thinking what is good for them always positive in the way they do the things and thats how they improve that to be smart is not only doing homework and saying "I'm smart now all the have to respect me". Is not all that, is being prepared when it comes to you the future.

sometime there are people who are so obsessed with proving a point that they dont open there mind to anything else, they dont absorb any knowledge because they want to show people that they are "SMART".
