The following diagram is the one our Am I Stupid test uses to analyze your responses and return accurate results. (It was first created by the author of the Basic Laws of Human Stupidity).

Every Other Quiz Is Stupid! (Here Is Why)

Most Am I Stupid quizzes on the web evaluate your intelligence quotient. So, they claim, those with less IQ are more foolish. However, that is only a shameful idea. There is no relation between being dumb and having a low level of intelligence or less thinking capacity.

As Carlo Cipolla suggested, “The probability that a certain person is stupid is independent of any characteristics.” So, that most online stupidity tests focus on your intelligence makes them invalid and inaccurate.

Everyone is lazy

The amount of effort it would take to always think with Mode 2 mind would be unsustainable and largely useless most of the time. Actually examining our assumptions and decisions with the care we give an algebra problem takes great effort, and who has the time? Most decisions don’t actually have a single “right” answer anyway, and there are a ton of great shows streaming right now.

This could be considered lazy. While laziness is often derided as a character flaw or one of the seven deadly sins, it actually offers great evolutionary advantages. Mollusks have been around for millions of years and they don’t do shit.

Many followers of evolutionary psychology (itself an often lazy discipline) contend that humans conserving energy by doing just enough to meet immediate needs was a preferable survival strategy to the effort it takes to engage in longer-term planning for some abstract goal—just go hunt a bear and don’t worry about building a city. In the 2021 world, immediate gratification isn’t an optimal success strategy either, but it’s tough for us to shake our ancient impulses, so it’s safe to assume that most people you meet are thinking and acting in the very short-term.

For an illustration of how “lazy” you are, ask yourself what percentage of your time is devoted to getting through the day, and what amount is involved in really striving for some kind of long-term, abstract gain.

How can you use this information to your advantage?

There’s nothing you can do to change the mental processes of others. You can only accept them. But that acceptance can help the world make more sense, whether it’s personal interactions or world politics. Realizing that political and social movements spring from the decisions of individuals working with incomplete information and a set of unknowable biases, instead of from a cabal of powerful people secretly plotting world domination, could mean you’re less likely to fall for conspiracy theories…and suddenly, the fact that hundreds of talented, intelligent people devoted their professional lives to producing the movie version of Cats makes sense.

It’s a great relief in interpersonal relations, as well. Knowing that your fantasy football rival and your co-workers at the batting cage are just bumbling along means you can stop obsessing over their motivations. No one knows what they’re doing, after all, and they’re probably just trying to make things easier for themselves in the short term.


You shouldn’t, however, mention any of this to loved ones. Just pretend it all makes sense. It’s how we get along.
