CS Lewis says..

When a man is getting better, he understands more and more clearly the evil that is still left in him. When a man is getting worse, he understands his own badness less and less. A moderately bad mean knows he is not very good : a thoroughly bad man thinks he is all right. This is common sense, really. You understand sleep when you are awake, not while you are sleeping. You can see mistakes in arithmetic when your mind is working properly; while you are making them you cannot see them. You can understand the nature of drunkenness when you are sober, not when you are drunk. Good people know about both good and evil; bad people do not know about either

- Mere Christianity

True... the presence of one is the absence of another but do you that Smart & Stupidity is not this case. People can be smart & stupid at the same time!! This was concluded by the Bill Clinton's case's researchers. True huh...
