    No, my dear. The definition of stupid is "incapable of learning"
    The definition of ignorant is "uninformed"

    We must always leave the door opened to knowledge, definition stupid incapable learning definition ignorant uninformed leave door opened

    Not necessarily.

    Ignorance is not knowing something because the person hasn't taken the time to learn it.

    Stupidity is not knowing something because the person can't learn it.

    There might be a bit of overlap between stupid people and ignorant people, but they're not exactly one in the same.

    Ignorant people don't know all the facts about a subject and act accordingly. Stupid people are given the facts and ignore them.

    Ignorant people are unknowledgeable regarding certain subjects, but definitely not stupid. Stupid is someone who doesn't "want" to learn, imo. So if I say someone is ignorant, even though it may sound like an insult........it is not ! If I say someone is stupid.....that's an offhand insult, because they are stupid by choice. Those are usually the kind of people who think they know it all.......and don't.

    Ignorant people are merely uneducated and often unwilling to be come educated. They also are immeditely going to be the ones to prove to you and the world some foolish imposibility. These are also hospital cases if they live, The stupid (thanks for using the Eugenics term) are what was once called "Simple". The modern day version is mentally challenged or merely "disabled".

    Some of the most ignorant (uneducated) people are actually very wise and some of the most intelligent (educated) people are the stupidest people that I know. Everybody is ignorant about different things, no matter how educated, but not everybody is stupid. Stupid people are those that think that education makes you intelligent and do not realize that they could learn something from everybody they meet.

    No, it may not be their fault that they don't know...they would only be stupid if they had the opportunity to learn and didn't...apart from where my kids are concerned maybe - ignorance is bliss!!!!!

    I think the words are similar but have different meanings. I think a 'stupid' person can become smart, but an 'ignorant' person wouldn't want to.

    It just depends on if they are ignorant just b/c they don't agree with something and they choose to remain that way, or if they lack education and knowledge about a specific topic.

    What we may judge as stupid..could be our own ignorance. If we judge others as ignorant...It's a possibility that we could be stupid. If you have an open mind...than people are neither.

    judge stupid ignorance judge ignorant possibility stupid open mind people

    Could be, but technically "ignorance" defines people that just are not equipped with the knowledge to problem solve or understand.

    "Stupidity", on the other hand, involves people that have the cognition but fail to act on it for any number of reasons.

    In my psychology class, they called this a "Logic Fallacy," but that is just a fancy word for "Stupid".
