    Default can you catch stupid?

    I know everyone says you can't. but I think it might be possible, because I'm convinced I'm dumber then I was a year ago. So thoughts on this, because I'm partially convinced I've caught the stupid virus.

    Well, we can do mentally stimulating or non-stimulating activities. So if your environment promotes a non-thinking atmosphere, that could maybe slow you from progressing. Or maybe if you don't use it, you lose it, and regress in intelligence.

    Or maybe you live near a nuclear plant and have early onset Alzheimers.

    I heard that you get alittle bit smarter each time you hit your head against a wall. I'm not 100% sure if it's true, but it couldn't hurt to try.

    Edit: You are in school, correct? Do you study more difficult or less interesting (to you) material now than you did a year ago? You may have just finally reached more challenging material. Also, diet and exercise can affect how effective and sharp your brain is.

    Finally, yes, you can catch stupid. Critical thinking and constant questioning make up your immune system. Remove those things, and you are no longer immune.

    I mean I've studied things harder than what I'm studying now. And it's like things that use to come so easily to me don't anymore, and I don't quite understand why.

    That doesn't make much sense but I don't seem to mind.

    I think being content is the smart way to avoid apparent stupidity, and there's always more to learn in life.

    ... But then, people generally like catching out other people's stupidity any way.

    So, we're all on our own.
