a term used to describe a person (often a woman) who does not think before acting and most times acts on pure impulse.
Some start off intellectually or emotionally retarted which eventually leads to being a dingbat. Others are born that way and are cursed with being a dingbat for life.
ex: I dated some real dumb chicks, but that Courtney girl was the biggest "dingbat" I ever encountered.

A person who is acting in a very dingbat-ish manner. Someone who is not 'with it today'. Someone who should be taught a thing or two about how to act around people.


*Someone walks into a lampost*, "Oh you dingbat!"

She says, "Hahaha, look, isn't an email like...writing a letter to your future self?"
They say, "You know what? You're a dingbat!"
