Ibn Gabirol, "Four Types of Men (And Women)"

"There are four types of men in this world:

1. The man who knows, and knows that he knows; 
he is wise, so consult him.

2. The man who knows, but doesn't know that he knows; 
help him not forget what he knows.

3. The man who knows not, and knows that he knows not;
teach him. 

4. Finally, there is the man who knows not but pretends that he knows; 
he is a fool, so avoid him."

    - Ibn Gabirol
