The High Price of Ignorance

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia “We are often unaware of the scope and structure of our ignorance. Ignorance is not just a blank space on a person’s mental map.”
Ignorance is a lack of knowledge and information. The word “ignorant” is an adjective that describes a person in the state of being unaware, or even cognitive dissonance and other cognitive relation, and can describe individuals who are unaware of important information or facts. Ignorance can appear in three different types: factual ignorance (absence of knowledge of some fact), object ignorance (unacquaintance with some object), and technical ignorance (absence of knowledge of how to do something). Consequences

Ignorance can have negative effects on individuals and societies, but can also benefit them by creating within them the desire to know more. For example, ignorance within science opens the opportunity to seek knowledge and make discoveries by asking new questions.[2] Though this can only take place if the individual possesses a curious mind.[citation needed]

Studies suggest that adults with an adequate education who perform enriching and challenging jobs are happier, and more in control of their environment.[3] The confidence that adults obtain through the sense of control that education provides allows those adults to go for more leadership positions and seek for power throughout their lives.[citation needed]

In 1984, author Thomas Pynchon observed: “We are often unaware of the scope and structure of our ignorance. Ignorance is not just a blank space on a person’s mental map. It has contours and coherence, and for all I know rules of operation as well. So as a corollary to writing about what we know, maybe we should add getting familiar with our ignorance, and the possibilities therein for ruining a good story.”[4]

Another effect of ignorance is characterized by the Dunning-Kruger effect, named after the scientists David Dunning and Justin Kruger in 1999. This theory centralizes the behavior of subjects regarding their intellectual capabilities and social behaviors. The limited information or competence of people that possess the Dunning-Kruger translates into a feeling of intellectual superiority.[5]”

Do You Feel Valued … Respected as a Person, a Unique Individual?

First, we have to overcome worrying about what others think of us.

Second, we have to stop doing what they want to gain people’s fickle approval.

And third, we can do these things by valuing … respecting ourselves because when we do then we are also empowered to value … respect others without qualifiers … and by doing so we work our way back into love.

“Nobody can be as good helping someone as someone who’s been through it.” Joyce Meyer

As part of an “Invisible Minority” … people whose personality types and other differences are very uncommon to the rest of people, I know what it is like to be misunderstood, misjudged, abandoned, bullied, ignored, maltreated, exploited, abused, and harmed almost to the point of not wanting to live, so I KNOW what many people do not and can help bridge the gap dividing us.

THESIS
Realizing disrespect is a historical and present philosophy being used as a discretionary value, consciously or not, to discriminate, exclude, manipulate, coerce, and even physically harm others for the benefit of others, for this reason, I developed the “Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle” thesis plus a variety of related books, products, and services.
