Stupidity made manifest by a non-stupid person. Such seemingly stupid behaviors issue from otherwise intellectually intact people suffering from attitudinal problems such that the will to act stupidly becomes unalterably manifest.
Whereas stupidity cannot be cured, stoopidity requires nothing more than the willingness of the person acting as if he were actually stupid to do otherwise.
The problem with stoopidity and where it differs from ignorance
lies in the fact that the ignorant man, having come to realize his deficiency will endeavor to correct his condition. The stoopid man, however, will consciously refuse to change.
Therefore, stoopidity is primarily a condition of attitude, will, and the conscious choices that follow therefrom.
Used in the precise same way as "stupid
", the only difference being the connotation that the stoopid person is that way by choice rather than due to some unavoidable condition.
Therefore: "Man that guy is stupid," should mean that the person in question is, in fact, unalterably stupid by birth, head trauma, brain lesions, or whatever condition that may cause such a state of existence to arise. Such a person cannot be held accountable for his state of being.
"Man that guy is stoopid," connotes a person who has no justifiable excuse for his stupid behavior; that he actually chooses to act stupidly for whatever reason and will not alter himself despite having been shown his error.
