Should well-educated people be better thinkers than uneducated or lowly-educated people?

+3 votes

I think that any highly-educated person in any part of the world should be able to think more logically, rationally, and critically than any uneducated or lowly-educated person in any part of the world.

I would define any highly-educated person to be someone who has already attended any educational institution of higher learning, such as a college or a university, and has successfully completed all the necessary course requirements and graduated with an undergraduate degree, like a Bachelor's degree, and/ or with an advanced postgraduate degree, like either a Master's degree or a doctorate degree.

I would define any uneducated or lowly-educated person to be someone who either did not receive any education at all (In other words, they had completely no education/ zero education), or who only just went to any high/ secondary school and graduated with just a high/ secondary school qualification/ diploma.

Any uneducated or lowly-educated person could be excused for not being able to think very logically, rationally, and critically, due to the fact that they either did not receive any education at all or they only received a very minimal amount of education for themselves.

Any highly-educated person is generally expected to be better thinkers because they have already undergone a lot more formal and rigorous higher educational/ academic training.

However, there are some highly-educated people who are not able to think very well for themselves, despite them already having received more formal higher educational/ academic training than the average person.

That being said, this is the exception rather than the norm, because for a fact, most highly-educated people are usually able to think much better than any other uneducated or lowly-educated people.

It depends.  One can't buy street smarts and common sense.

They should be, but some of them suffer from what Hayek referred to as the Fatal Conceit.  Read his book of the same name for an insight into how lots of smart people can sometimes get it wrong.

I am a college graduate with a great career and let me tell you my father has told me plenty of times that I am one smart cookie but I lack common sense at times.
