Of fools and selfish people

Our world is made up of fools and selfish people. Why? Because those who talk don't know and those who know don't talk. I must confess that sometimes I'm guilty of such behaviour myself. What about you? Do you share a similar view?

sometimes fools are better than intelligent people I am guessing. Because too much thinking leads to mental block.

@skysnap Are you saying that smart people think so much that they get mental problems compared to a fool who does not think so much or think at all? I find this response rather strange. Anyway I guess that is your opinion.

@succeednow yes that's because one of my friend works in such hospital. 95% of the people are successful, intelligent but badly broken from inside.

It does not work out always. We need to talk being a good listener. Release a word with good intervals and allow the opposite to talk more. That is what I employ in most of the situations.

@shivamani10 What does not work out always? Talk less or talk more?

Yes. I agree... I'm more of a listener. And I don't talk unless I'm confident with what I'm about to share.

@rachz_kisses, Yes, it's always better to listen than talk if you have nothing logical or useful to contribute to avoid being misunderstood.

True! But, i'm a type of person who is quite. I don't usually talk when it's not necessary. I hate to open up my opinion or thought with others i have no confidence at all.

@eliza_godinez12 Yes, one should learn to listen more and talk less. One would certainly look foolish if one speaks out of point.

You are right. Those who do not know talk much in the fear that people will think that they do not know Those who know talk less in the fear that people will think that they do not know

@arundhatiwriter I agree with your first two sentences in your comment but I don't quite get your point in the last sentence. If I may paraphrase it, "Those who know talk less as they are afraid that others will think that they do not know."

That is true, especially in the corporate world. I think they are probably good parents who want to share their wisdom with their children but they do not want to share with their colleagues because it will hurt their career progression.

@scheng1 Your first sentence is spot on! This is what I had in mind when I initiated this discussion.
