Some people are unaware of how they approach a situation or even a person thus lacking certain social skills leaving one to come off as an ass, idiot, imbecile or moran. So, think before you speak. This brings me to the definition of:
IGNORANCE is a state of being uninformed (lack of knowledge). The word “ignorant” is an adjective describing a person in the state of being unaware and is often used as an insult. “Ignoramus” is commonly used in the UK and Ireland as a name of someone who is overwhelmingly ignorant.
Ignorance should be distinguished from stupidity, although both can lead to “unwise” acts. Also, if important information is available, one may fail to acquire it due to lack of intelligence (not realizing its importance, or not understanding it).
Nothing personal, just something I thought I’d put out there as food for thought. SIGH- Christina XO
