Managing Knowledge




There are some people who take undue pride in knowledge as they begin to think that they know everything. They think that they are always right and even expect others to think so…like having yes men around us. When they are overcome with pride knowledge, they are not prepared to listen to anyone.

Human beings often block the entry of knowledge if they consider themselves to be very knowledgeable. These people simply do not try to understand what the other person is saying. They are actually in their own zone and everyone else looks small to them. The moment one tries to showcase its knowledge is sure that this virus has infected him.

Even if they go to an enlightened knowledgeable person who can show us the way, the pride of knowledge will stand in between. One starts judging everything according to his or her own intellect. One does everything according to what they like and dislike. Taking only what goes with his/her preconceived ideas. A person being in this frame of mind is at more disadvantage. Pride of knowledge keeps people from realising more knowledge from others.

Its then when one starts to have opinion on each and everything without realizing that this behavior of theirs may hurt someone depending on which stage that person is going through. A person with mind set is always associated with pride of power. Pride of more knowledgeable than others more control on others. These people try to determine the lives and faith of others around them.

The more they stick to this mindset, the more they are at disadvantage. Knowledge is just like a software as one need to keep it updated, otherwise your lagging behind and of no use. We need to treat everyone equally and always be ready to listen, which is more important. As its said that one who knows the price of everything…knows the value of nothing !! One should know how to utilize their knowledge and gain more.

So true. It's hard to know everything, be an expert on every topic. Knowledge is limitless, one needs to understand that and be open to learning more at every step of their life.

Those people with real knowledge are very humble and wise, I think no showing it off, but we acknowledge...

and how riduculous it is to think that one has a patent on all the knowlegde in the world! and stop the upgrades :P

People in power at some level, fail to empathise with others, That knowledge is then used as a tool to enforce, force or just kill!!

BTW Nazish u are tagged :)

Knowledge is always neutral. Its the one who uses it and to what end that makes the difference.To rise above personal tastes, prejudices and cultural backdrop and use a piece of knowledge to seek more knowledge is very difficult. We can't accept one view because we have another. This must be there or we shall not seek more. So, actually the opinion differenc helps constructively. Care must be taken that a conflict doesn't arise.

Very nicely written. There is a saying in Tamil. Katradhu Kymman alavu. Kallaladhu Ulagu alavu. (What you learnt is like what you have inside your palm. What you are yet to learn is as big as this universe.)

I agree with you. I have known people who are so used to being 'right', they do not even listen to others opinions. Very sad for them because they cannot grow unless they are learning.

"We need to treat everyone equally and always be ready to listen, which is more important. As its said that one who knows the price of everything…knows the value of nothing !! One should know how to utilize their knowledge and gain more."

I say Amen to that. A very philosophical post, Nazish. I agree with you completely. Unfortunately the world is full of such Know - it all people. That is the reason the world is in such a mess and there are so many wars.
