more knowledge = more worries

HI mylotters! It has been long time ago since I met a saying that has a main idea of "more knowledge = more worries." The idea is that while we learn a lot on different aspects of life, we have so much idea on what is good and what is bad, what is right and what is wrong. With this, our ability to detect errors has made us more prone to worries. As we can easily detect what is good or bad and what is right or wrong, we become more occupied on being so concern about our individual actions and those actions of other people. Our concerns has ranged from errors on grammar/punctuation usage to different actions, habits, practices, beliefs of others and of ourselves. What can you say about this mylotters?

I do think that we are capable of over reacting to certain circumstances if we very well know something about it. And that could be really irritating really coz we tend to always make sure that everything is done perfectly.

Hi Jenny1015...It is really irritating and worrisome when we keep on making sure that everything is done perfectly, as if we don't have the right to be wrong.

It may not mean a thing to some, but for people who knows a lot, being perfect is an understatement.

You are right more knowledge means more worries because if we know more means think more about this thing and try some extra gaining. But now competition is very tough or life is very hard so gaining more knowledge is good habit but dont take tension and dont think more.

I think whenever we learn, the more we are susceptible to wanting to perfect what we do. The thing is, it is like kids who would start schooling, when they first start in school the teachers are more lenient with them because it is somewhat a common knowledge that these children will still have to learn how to write, or read, or to socialize. Similarly when a person who would go to a business school or someone who would want to further their studies, they are expected to qualify for something before they can contiinue with their studies, and so it is expected of them to be knowledgeable, it is expected that they have a work experience they can use for their studies, etc. The worries come in where we need to be sure before we submit something and it might worry us if we are insecure of what we did. Worries would come primarily for those who are not prepared; and those who think they know something but is unsure.

Thank you chiyosan. I also experience it many times. Being unsure of what I do gives me worries. The worry is made even hard when more people are expecting so much from you. This is all because we wanted to perform perfectly at all times though it is a fact that we will somehow fail.

Well, it rally depends.. But i think that is quite true in many cases. Since if a person knows more, lie the news, or what's happening to the country then he will worry more about his loved ones affected by a problem..

You told it correct. If we have more knowledge, but not full, we have many reasons to start worrying. We may not be full in knowledge. Somebody with full knowledge and somebody with no knowledge may not worry about things. As the knowledge goes up our worries also go up.

That is true. The more you know about a certain thing, you tend to see things through to make sure that what you are doing is only the best. And along the way comes the worry of thinking that MAYBE we won't be able to achieve what we want.

It is a bad thing to us. our brain is a tool,it should work only when we need it to work,but it work on all the time even when we sleep.we can't stop,it judged all the things ,which is right or worong,which is good or bad.though sometimes it is no necesory.It make us tired,it is harmful to our health.So we must learn to control our brain,when we don't need it to work,to judge.Brain is a tool,just like a computer,when we don't use it ,turn off it.

Hi, you are right. More knowledge means more worries. The persons having more knowledge try to reach at perfection. Perfection is not easy. More knowledge means always has the fear of doing mistakes. Others also have more expectations from the knowledgeable person.

actually its true, I'll use an analogy. When we were in elementary we just worry about going to school and meeting friends, since we're still kids. When we reached high school, we worry about grades, allowances, boys/girls, where to go to college and many more. When we were in college, we worry about grades, relationships, extra curricular activity or organizations to join, what to do after college and many many more. Basically while we're growing up and gaining more knowledge we're prone to stop and think and worry about what ifs, what's next and so on... When we didn't have that knowledge yet we were worry free, everything's simple and easy.

so it is better not to learn? Is this the point of this discussion?

more knowledge does end up in more worries...as is obvious a person who is ignorant of all happening around him would most likely be free from the tension and worries.A child is free from the worries of the world only because of the fact that he does not have the knowledge of anything that is taking place around him.
