Are you smart or dumb if you achieve something that is dumb & stupid with clever & smart methods?
Lets say the "goal" is something completely stupid that only a moron would think about, but the "methods" for achieving it is enormously clever and smart..
Is the person then dumb for failing to realize that the result is dumb or is he smart for actually achieving it in a smart and clever way?
ONLY two options.Feel free to debate it as much as you want tho, but don't complain about the options, choose one of them.
1. The main question is "Are you smart or stupid if you achieve something that is dumb & stupid with clever & smart methods".
2. To make this a meaningful question you have to think of the "goal/achievement" as DEFINITELY stupid, to do this you can associate it with an experience or something you find stupid.
3. You have to imagine a situation where the "final goal/achievement" is DEFINITELY stupid, but where the methods of achieving that goal is DEFINITELY smart and clever.
4. You have to not think of an actual scenario, but a hypothetical scenario where 1&2&3 are definite factors, but where an "association" is optional to grasp the question asked in 1.
5. You have to remember that the question doesn't refer to any specific case or actual scenario, but that it refers to a hypothetical and philosophical question.
6. Then you can go ahead and answer the question.
