Human Mind !!!

Are humans able to assimilate the data that is poured in front of them. I mean, I am not talking about like a ton of numerical results but just few simple facts. I guess it’s the same thing which GMAT calls as Critical Thinking :).

For .e.g.

Scenario 1 :

If I tell you that I don’t know much about some stuff and then tell you few things about it. What is final conclusion ?. Most of the times .. ahh well he doesn’t know that stuff very well.

Scenario 2:

If I tell you that I am an expert in something, and then tell you the same few things about it (the ones which I said in the above paragraph). What is the final conclusion? Well you think that he knows stuff.

Kind of a tricky game !
