No more IDK!!!!

Why do people like to fake it until they make it? I would much rather admit that I am ignorant about something and then give myself the time to research and become knowledgeable in that area. I highly doubt that people know about any and everything at all times. I have met some very smart people, but I can say without a doubt that they do not know any and everything this world has to offer. What most "smart" people do know is that if you have a hunger to learn and are not lazy in putting forth the effort it takes to do it, you can. I am one of those people that have a lot of extra information stored in my mind, do not get my wrong I am far from a genius, but have no issue in letting someone know that I do not know.

The idea of faking it until I make it never made sense to me, because it frustrates me to pretend. I guess some people see no problem in putting up a facade to hide their shortcomings...why? In my personal opinion it is due to the fact that they have been able to coast through life. It is just sad to me that society sees this as an acceptable alternative. I am not oblivous to the fact that some people become do well and I am fine with that, I would just rather promote seeking knowledge and information instead of faking our way through life. Knowledge is one thing we can take wherever we go and nobody can take it away from you.
