Are you afraid of looking stupid?

A girlfriend of mine, she's really cautious. She hardly ever asks questions even when she's uncertain of something because she does not want to appear stupid in the eyes of strangers or her peers. Me? I could care less. I am quite open to asking seemingly daft questions if I don't know the answer to it. I had a professor once who always told us that there's no such thing as a stupid question. Maybe I don't completely agree with that, but I think it's okay to ask questions to learn and, in so doing, to seem ignorant temporarily once you ultimately benefit from the knowledge in the end. What do you guys think? Are you afraid of asking about something or commenting on something if you think it would make you seem stupid? Image courtesy Quickmeme. And yes, I do see the spelling error for the word "could".

@AlisaTR I am also been told before that no question is a stupid one but there are those that want to be superior to someone so make a not nice comment to someone's question. I asked a question on facebook the other day and this guy acted like a jerk and continued on. When I told him by words that I did not like his behavior he continued on with it and I blocked him. I do not have to put up with jerks.
