The title's pretty mean.
OP, you could've just put "Kids Are Uneducated". But hey, it's your life.
User avatar #4 to #3 - dwraith (04/23/2014) [-]
It's not a matter of education. Kids really are just stupid.

There are certain points in their development that they learn key concepts, and the whole, "law of conservation of matter" thing doesn't really click for young kids.

People, it's psychology 101.

Children ages 3-7 are not developed enough to grasp the concept of conservation or reversibility. If any of you had done this experiment at their age, at least 95% of you all would have said the same thing this little girl just did. She's not stupid, she's learning. Don't even try to pretend that you weren't as naive as she was at one point in your life.

For more information, look up "Piaget's Stages of Cognitive Development"

These kids don't understand how matter works guys.
Stop calling them dumb.
This little kid was you at one point.
Don't ******** me, every kid at some point would have fallen for this.
And if you claim that you wouldn't have, then you are a lying sack of **** .

These kids aren't dumb. They're like 5 or 6 at the most.

They're brains are still growing. They lack the full development of their frontal and parietal lobes. The kid in this experiment is saying the tall glass holds more juice, because the only concrete evidence she can summon at her age is that the tall glass appears larger, and therefore holds more liquid.

Saying they're dumb is like saying "Sharks sure are stupid for not being able to breathe on land."

forgot the exact name for this but i remember it from a psych class. at her stage in psychological development most children would answer the same way.

in short, op is the dumb one

I did the same thing in my kindergarten class. One of the parents said I should know better since I'm the teacher but whatever, **** that bitch.

This message is primarly for people who saw this and immediately said:

You know before you call these kids dumb 			*****		.   
A lot of people who would call them dumb 			*****		 jumped for the iPhone when they introduced 			****		 like the "Retina" display.   
It was just slapping a shiny word in there and jingling a few keys and millions of people bought it.   
This is how the majority of advertising, politics, banking, insurance and basically any other service deals with people. Unless you have the knowledge, you fall for the tricks.

These kids have been measuring in length and height and primarily counting in single numbers.   
So they have no knowledge about volume, but 			****		 they know the height increase, which in a way is more.   
There's also that one similar to this with the crackers.    
We all know they should halve the remaining cracker so they each have 1 and 1/2 each, but the lady just halves the kid's cracker and keeps two full ones.    
Bearing in mind she probably hasn't learned her fractions yet she counts and is correct, and to her that seems fair.    
I really dont see the point in these gifs to show "Kids are dumb."    
"How kids see the world" might be a better title

For everyone saying this is a demonstration on object permanence, it is not. This is conservation. Link supplied.

leave their developing brain alone, you cunt

i used to know some pretty smart kids who turn out to be stupid when they get older

its a bit like saying elephants are smarter than humans because they learn to stand up after a few hours of being born

This is basic psychology, children don't develop these reasoning skills until they are older usually around 4-5.

Someone hasn't explained 'volume' to the child yet. The tester is obviously 'the' moron.

its not that no one has explained it to them, its like a baby with object permanence. they arent developed enough to understand yet

not dumb. they're too young. their minds are not psychologically developed enough to know the difference until they are older.

LOL what a n00b! Only a lvl 4! Lrn2Juice faggot.

But seriously, its not that shes dumb, shes only a kid and doesn't know the things we do. Not really fair to expect that from her.
User avatar #12 to #9 - snakephallus (04/23/2014) [-]
It's a part of her psychological growth. At a young age children have trouble with Conservation in which they cannot logically determine that a certain quantity will remain the same despite being moved to a different container. This .gif is from a video showing children and their inability to use conservation.

The theory was actually created by Jean Piaget who theorized that children below the Concrete operational stage (Ages 7-11) would not yet have developed this ability.

She's not dumb, she just doesn't understand and isn't expected to cuz she's a little girl.

Being biologically incapable of understanding because of how underdeveloped her brain is is different from a fully formed brain not understanding things.
