“There’s nothing stupider than a smart person who went wrong”

“There’s no appreciation on the part of the intellectual elite for the pathologies of rationalism. There’s nothing stupider than a smart person who went wrong. I’ve seen this in my clients, if I have a particularly smart client who is particularly disordered in their personality, that’s so difficult it’s almost unimaginable because they’re so good at rationalizing.”
— Jordan Peterson
