we all know someone who's intelligent ,but who occasionally defends obviously bad ideas,,why does this happen?how can smart people take up positions that defy any reasonable logic?

for me the problem with smart people is that they like to be right and sometimes will defend ideas to the death rather than admit they're wrong they've probably built an ego around being right

It's not really about intelligent people, it's more like people who are really accustomed to arguing. Like arguing with someone stupid (who argues a lot) will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

many "smart" people never want to admit that they are wrong..stupid people dont want to admit that they are wrong either..people dont like to admit that they are wrong..people often say that the ends justify the means..some even convince themselves that those they hurt aren’t worthy of respect..the result of wanting to be right misdiagnosing someone and continuing with the wrong treatment because you cant admit that you made a mistake..

That Is True

A perfect example of a profession that excels in this is the criminal defence barrister who will find ways to 'prove' that his/her client is innocent of a crime..thats their job !

Defendin bad idea is ill nd selfish..

People live with fates and situations.. They defend an idea and if it is bad, there must be some reason strong at that moment. And most of the times its nothing more than a BAD-EGO.

Bad words and spreading rumurs is an intelligent way of makin things worst 1 word can be ,1 enough reason to make the situation worst so KEEPING a mouth shut is more better than insisting an aruguement
