Smart people are clever but clever doesn't mean smart.
Have you ever heard of the Dunning-Kruger effect ? If you don't know the term, you definitely have experienced the principle.

In short, dumb people are too dumb to understand exactly how dumb they are. Smart people are clever enough to know how much they don't know.
