Not sure about this one. I've seen derpy dogs and insanely smart dogs. We're the only creatures intelligent enough to know when we're being stupid.

@bigdaddy69-4life Stupidity is a uniquely human concept. Stupid does not exist to dogs.

Calling someone or something stupid is a judgement of intelligence based on its actions. A mollusk is perceived to be less intelligent than a human. Again, a dog or a mollusk doesn't know they are dumb, they have no concept of what this means, however, a human observer is able to label someone or something as stupid based on their observations.

Correct. But the human doing the labeling could be so stupid that their claims of stupidity are judged to be stupid by another observer.

Dogs absolutely understand stupidity. They often show shame after doing something stupid for a start. They also become protective of other dogs they know do stupid stuff. Such as walking between them and a cliff when out walking or barking at the other dog as the head off towards other dogs that could be dangerous. If you ever spend time with a pack of dogs you'll see this behavior, some dogs are dumb and the other dogs know this.

When animals know something, they KNOW it. Like computers. But people make mistakes that they could have easily avoided constantly. Its weird

I go one strp further. We arectge stupidest animal ever created. We just think we are intelligent.

Dunno man, i literally just watched a video of a pigeon throwing itself in the furnace for no apparent reason
