Common Missteps When Facing a Superior Intellect

When facing someone of superior intelligence;

If they are a little smarter,
Without all the information,
It is possible to think that they are never wrong
Always right
And follow them or mirror them.

If they are a lot smarter,
Without all the information,
It is possible to think that they are tricking you somehow
That they are evil
And suspect every move they make.

And If they are a great deal smarter,
Without all the information,
It is possible to mistake them for stupid
Ignorant
And underestimate or belittle their actions.

But the best way to avoid these missteps is to;
Before following them,
Before accusing them,
Before judging them,

Get all the information.
