Close Encounters of the Third Kind

No, not the movie, but the the third kind as described by Niccolo Machiavelli:

The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli: Chapter 22:
There are three different kinds of brains, the one understands things unassisted, the other understands things when shown by others, the third understands neither alone nor wil the expanations of others. The first kind is most excellent, the second is also excellent, but the third useless.
It seems I've encountered more than my fair share this week.
