Idiot is a word derived from the Greek word "idiotes". A person lacking professional skill.
In Latin the word idiota ("ordinary person, layman") preceded the Late Latin meaning "uneducated or ignorant person.
Its modern meaning dates back to Middle English around the year 1300, from the Old French idiote ("uneducated or ignorant person").
Words are only as correct and honest as those that speak them and they convey to the listener false or true information accordingly.
Understanding and truth comes from within the listener to the degree of his or her own integrity.
We use our innate attribute of truth to make corrections and judgements of every kind:
in our work as Engineers, Electricians, Builders, Drivers, Cooks, Farmers and so on, most important of all, in our communications with others: unless of course we are out to deliberately deceive.
Choose your mentors wisely, 73 Jon (G4URH)
