I think so, sometimes he realizes his "stupidity", "stupidity". If we take "stupidity" for a person's lack of information or lack of possession of a certain skill or skill. The example is simple. Once I discussed with my sister the success of her 7-year-old daughter in school. The girl was there and heard everything. In general, her mom and I expressed concern in a joking manner about her ability in math. The girl began to cry loudly. Saying she's stupid. It really upset her. But then she began to contradict herself saying that she was smarter than everyone. This is an example of what approximately happens to a person who has realized his alleged "inferiority". Awareness and then denial. The next stage is perhaps aggression, and then acceptance. Perhaps she missed some stages. But I watched the children mostly. And they are well aware that they are sometimes "stupider" when they compare themselves with adults or peers. People with cognitive errors in thinking are another matter. Indeed, it is difficult for them to notice the erroneousness and absurdity of their judgments. And other people. By the way, do not think that you are not one of them. I have never met anyone who would not “sin.” “Dullness” is a common human “disease”. Leveling your "stupidity" is another matter. Or closeness to you of your defect in thinking. "You can't see a face face to face. Great things are seen from a distance."
there is such a moment as different types of intelligence, someone is better at solving mathematical problems, and someone has a huge speed of muscle memory and someone personally has verbal perception, look (. Types of intelligence) not everything is so simple, but still it is better to assume that most people are not competent =)
When you died, you do not know this, only loved ones are hurt. It's the same when you are dumb ...

Smart people, as already mentioned, tend to underestimate their mental abilities. And the stupid - to overestimate.
One can argue about the fact that there is a mind. But let's take "mind = knowledge" for simplicity. And let's compare 2 people: the grandmother at the entrance, who hates everyone and considers them damned drug addicts, as well as a professor, for example, MIT.
So, the amount of grandmother's knowledge is represented as a square with side 1. The professor's knowledge is a square with a side of 10. Everything inside this square is knowledge. Everything outside, respectively, is unknown.
So, this unpleasant grandmother encounters the unknown a little less often: in this case, it is equal to 4 conventional units. And the professor's contact with the unknown is 40.
Therefore, it turns out that not a very smart grandmother has every reason to believe that she knows the world well. And he does not consider himself dumb at all.
For the same reason, when we start learning something new for ourselves, we think that we can quickly master it. However, delving deeper into the topic, we understand that this is sooooo wrong.
One writer of the 19th century could answer like this:
"All prejudices are destroyed,
We regard everyone as zeros,
And as ones - ourselves .
We all look at Napoleons;
There are millions of two-legged creatures
There is one weapon for us ... "
Of course not, a dumb one a priori is not able to come to the conclusion that he is dumb. Here is my argument: A stupid one will never doubt his own rightness, in disputes he will shout to prove that he is not stupid, but he simply cannot adequately perceive any argumentation, therefore he will always think that he is right, but how can he right to be blunt? No. There are always some inviolable laws in his head. To be honest, such people remind me of orcs from science fiction, because they are not able to think about their own wrong, but live by some kind of their own representation of this world.
There is such a definition in psychology - the Dunning-Kruger effect. For the discovery of this syndrome, scientists were even awarded the Shnobel Prize.
This type of cognitive distortion consists in the fact that a person makes erroneous judgments, makes wrong decisions due to his limitations, and for the same reason does not understand his mistakes. This leads to the emergence of overestimated ideas about their own abilities, while really highly qualified people, on the contrary, tend to underestimate their abilities and suffer from insufficient self-confidence, considering others to be more competent.
So, most likely, "stupid" is not able to understand his "stupidity"
A stupid person will never think whether he is stupid, whether he needs to change. He lives gloriously precisely for the reason that he does not think about anything - even about himself, he does not delve into anything.
(By the way, by their very nature, they are quite funny and carefree people, and they can attract other people to themselves (especially when it comes to teenagers) and sometimes even adjust to themselves.)
But a person who has the makings of reason will ask himself: "Am I really that stupid?" and will probably want to fix it.
