What's interesting is that it takes a while until a child has developed the ability of knowing that others might know something they don't.

For example

Two girls are in a room, in the room there's a basket and a bag, girl number one has a chocolate bar which she puts in the basket and then LEAVES the room. Girl number two then takes the chocolate bar and places it in the bag.

Girl number one returns to the room to get her chocolate bar. Where does she look?
The obvious answer is the basket because that is where she left it. A child which is too young however will assume that she looks in the bag because that is where the child saw that girl number two hid the chocolate bar. The child does not think of what girl number one knows.

When a child gets the ability to know the real answer to this question though, you're going to get bombarded with questions for many years. Have fun!

(Fun fact: Animals never develop this ability)

Animals doesn't know they're dumber than humans.
You know all the apes that learn sigh language etc. and communicates with humans? All thos eexperiments and ****.. Well, the apes never ask'd a question, because they assume that we're all equally smart.

At least a friend told me this.. Can't give source, sorry..

Primates don't. Humans are the only ones, actually.

I'm pretty sure the way you've been brought up has an effect on where you'd look first.
Where I'm from the majority of people will look in the bag first, because everyone here is a thieving cunt, and if its not in the bag, then it should still be in the basket.

An education should never be mistaken for intelligence.

But education can help you in the search for knowledge.
