Proverbs 14:7-9 Leave the presence of a fool, or you will not discern knowledge. The wisdom of the sensible is to understand his way, but the foolishness of fools is deceit. Fools mock at sin, but among the upright there is good will.
Truth isn't only about knowledge... it's also about learning to accept your limitations and focus on your strengths. Don't take what society tells you as sacred words set in stone. It may just take a while for the rest of your culture to catch up with you. And that's ok.
