    Are university students "stupid" or lack common sense.

    Serious thread, many students I know on and offline seem to have the impression that they are smart and if they dont understand something its the fault of the person telling it to them.

    Many university students I know get worked up easily and are quite willing to put someone down they have a difference of opinion with as they have made a quck rash judgement on the person.

    In the past I have tried talking to someone but as I stutter and get confused I get either called stupid or lazy or that I make pathetic arguments(in reality its because I am mildly autistic so have problems forming information in the brain)

    Anyway Im rambling again but what is peoples opinions on students.

    Lol its funny when you say see a thread online on a student site or in a classroom and one person goes "I dont understand what you are saying" making out that if the person was intelligent they would word it quite eloquently when IMO if they were so smart they would understand anyway.

    Maybe they talk a different language?:?

    I think it's just the age group.

    This was something that I didnt totally think of since often when you get a reply online its stuff like "oh I know what I am talking about since I have 10 GCSE's A*s and 4 AS levels A*" etc etc.

    Thinking of I have had discussions when the university students say street smarts is just a way for thick people to think they are intelligent.

    got a specific question, shoot, i will answer the best i can.

    but yes i think a lot are stupid as there is a lot of crap unis now

    I dont no which uni your on about but im not like that and havent seen someone that stupid before either :giggle:

    I'd say that's far too crude a generalisation to make even if some students are like that, the student population is extremely varied. I have to say I think your post is a bit ironic given some of your exploits on this forum.

    Lol I go to an ex poly, but in part yeah uni has become more mainstream but people still act as if they are some sort of Einstein for getting in.

    On the same note there is a lot of snootyness from people who go to "proper" redbrick unis thinking just as they got in they are somehow superior

    I fit into the category your describing (uni student); and if I'm wrong I would admit it, or if I don't understand something I would seek advice.

    I think the statement 'Are university students "stupid" or lack common sense.' is a gross generalisation, as there are thousands of university students, and come from a massive range of regions, backgrounds, professions, which in turn has an effect on their attitude. Although admittedly, I do somewhat agree with your point; the university I go to is full of 'intellectual ego's', but it definitely does not represent the majority.

    I do not believe myself to be smart, i actually struggle with my content on my course and actually question if im doing the right course sometimes!
    Im doing LLB Law, and in my third year, thus if ive got this far im doing at least something partial right.

    However i will not disagree for arguments sake or anything similar, id say im actually a good listener and consider both side of the argument and often even agree with parts of both side on certain issues.

    But ill will happily admit as a general consensus lots of students are like that...mainly the ones who have gone to university because they dont want to live real lifes yet!

    Yes ironic but I personally am the way I am because I am autistic and by that I get worked up easy and find it hard to argue.

    I have been to 3 universities over my education years and seen the same at all, but I think age plays a major part since many university students think uni is about the good life and all the stereotypes of being young and to deviate from any of it i.e dont like to drink makes someone stand out and therefore be different.

    Which is also ironic since most university students I know fall into certain groups so by being individual they are being sheep!

    The exploits I was referring to were nothing to do with autism and instead just lacking common sense, you were simply trying to gain sympathy and support on this forum when you'd made blatant errors on another forum and then tried to cover them up publically.

    As I said above and agree with the post just after me, it's quite insulting to make such a generalisation - you'll find such people in all fields, not just within the university student population although the percentage may be slightly higher in the latter.

    I think a lot of people do. I think it's one of those subjects that needs your full concentration. You have to read around the subject extensively before you will get the depth of knowledge you need to render you fully capable of understanding the majority of what you're given.
