You think you're smart, don't you?
You're the kind of person who gets high marks throughout the school and gets into a good university, so surely no one can tell you what is smart.
I have bad news for you.
A new book by science reporter David Robson, the intellectual trap, argues that academic talent doesn't necessarily make you smart.
In fact, it may make you stupid.
It's time for all of you to erase those smug smiles from your face.
I talked to Robson about the way smart people end up playing silly.
The most basic problem, he said, is laziness.
He created the term "cognitive miser" to describe people who are stingy with their mental power.
