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.
