You’re probably aware that the most famous person you’ve met is your father.
Now, that may sound pretty obvious, but you’ve probably never thought about it, has it?
In fact, it’s an incredibly important concept, as you’ll see.
For most people, the fact that your father is a man who has no interest in anything but his job and his family is a bit of a surprise.
So how many of us, even the most average people, are guilty of doing the same thing when we meet someone new?
The most embarrassing person you know?
This one’s actually the one you probably never even met.
According to the Oxford Dictionary of Idioms, the word ‘idiot’ is “a person who does not know what he is doing”.
It is said to be derived from the German ‘Idische’ meaning ‘irritated’, which also translates as ‘disgusted’.
It’s an apt description of the person you’ll likely be in a relationship with if you find yourself talking to someone who doesn’t know what they are talking about, but then when the subject turns to something else, you start laughing.
So if you have a relationship where your partner has a very different idea of what’s appropriate for a conversation, it might be best to try to think ahead.
It’s also worth remembering that the concept of idiots is not exclusive to men.
If your wife has an idea of how much you’re spending on a Christmas tree, you might find that she’s a very bad person.
So why does the phrase idiot still have meaning?
Well, the idea that you’re an idiot has been around for a long time, but the term originated in the 19th century when an Austrian economist named Ludwig von Mises coined it as a way to describe someone who didn’t understand something.
“There are three types of idiots,” says John Gilder, author of the book Idiot Brain: How to Stop Thinking and Live Your Life Wisely.
Mises argued that this term should not be used to describe a person who simply did not have a clear idea of the nature of things. “
Idiot” means ‘irrational’.
Mises argued that this term should not be used to describe a person who simply did not have a clear idea of the nature of things.
Instead, he argued that it should be used when someone thought they were intelligent but lacked the insight or insight to see through the rationalisation.
“The term idiot is meant to describe people who are unable to reason or to know the nature and scope of things, or who are so lacking in knowledge that they cannot make sense of their own actions and ideas,” says Gilders.
Moses was the first to point out that the term was not a universal one, however.
In the 1910s, the English philosopher Thomas Hobbes was also keen to use it to describe those who lack rational thinking skills.
And it is clear that, in recent years, the term has gained more traction as people get older.
In a study published last year in Psychological Science, researchers at the University of Edinburgh analysed the use of the term in online communities and found that people aged 18 to 34 were more likely to use the word “idiot” than those aged over 50.
“A study found that older people use ‘idiots’ in online discussions of religion and politics, with older people being the most likely to call religious figures idiots, whilst younger people are more likely not to,” says co-author Dr Elizabeth O’Leary.
“This is because older people are still able to reason, but they are less likely to be able to recognise a logical fallacy.
This is the opposite of what you would expect from a person with a brain of average size.”
So if you’re not yet thinking about the meaning of the word, you’re doing something right.
