How long do you tolerate ignorance for?

If you were to be put into a room full of morons how long would it be before you said something about them being morons? By morons I mean like being put in a room full of children but they do not have the ability to learn very well. Would it be your fault or there fault that they are not able to learn as fast as you would like?

    I would immediately accept them at the level they are in,there is no sense to be intolerant to ignorance,its useless to be angry at someone who has no knowledge of what they do.Instead I would try to value what they do know,and enlighten them with what I do,no matter how ignorant,disabled or uneducated a person may be,they have something of quality within them if you just take the time.In fact it is fascinating to get an ignorant perspective on the world.

    I would ask to be transferred before I made the comment of "morons". If you are asked for an explanation you just tell them that you have a drastic problem there with the attention span of the others and it is disruptive for your learning process. That always will get a better response than the word morons. It is hard I know been there and done that. Happy New Year

    If they had learning difficulties I wouldn't call them morons, it wouldn't be their fault the way they were born.

    Actually, I wouldn't even think of them as being morons. I've met some morons in my time, but my idea of a moron isn't a child with learning difficulties. My nephew has autism and he's not a moron unlike a lot of supposedly 'normal' people.

    If you're a teacher of kids with learning difficulties I sincerely hope you don't always refer to them as 'morons'

    (sorry if i misunderstood your question by the way)

    EDIT - Another thumbs down. I wonder what the 'right' answer to this question was.

    Ignorance does not always equate with moronic.. example.. your doctor doesn't know what your symptoms mean.. so you are referred to another physician.. your doc is ignorant of many things.. but usually can't be called a moron.. lol

    If they can not help being "morons", I would be able to deal with it for as long as I needed to. In your example of children, I mean come on, if they can't help being slow they can't help it. On the other hand, if it is a bunch of stupid adults who are just stupid because they are, it would take me about 2 seconds flat before I started telling them exactly what I thought.

    About as long as I can tolerate a sentence ending with a preposition. I find it equally difficult to tolerate a sentence that should contain commas...Check the grammar and spelling before ranting. It'll make you SEEM articulate.

    Ignorant people can be taught. Slowly, maybe, but I can be pretty damn slow too depending on the course. I can get aggravated with them, but I can tolerate them for a LONG time.

    STUPID people... well, they can't be taught at all so I can only tolerate then for about as long as it takes me to scream obscenities at them.

    By your use of english I would say that you would be the biggest moron in the room.

    Well, I put up with you for about nine seconds, so that would seem to be the answer. And it's "their fault," not "there fault." Moron.
