          According to Sheppared (2017), smart-shaming has become very quotidian and it makes smart people feel uncomfortable. Slut-shaming and fat-shaming are other types of this issue. Typically, these forms mean making someone feel ashamed of being that characteristics. The only place that actual smart-shamming occurs is in school, where some of more self-assured, less brilliant students will mock their more studious peers. Youngster may it have the full understanding on the importance of knowledge at this period, instead, they may see the characteristics of an intelligent student as kind of passive and weak.

          Smart-shaming is also called as "anti-intellectualism", as the name itself, it opposes knowledge. One of the reasoms why student smart-shame is that they do not value the ideas of others or they ignore to learn. In the world, when students smart-shame, they deprecate education and refuse knowledge. So smart-shaming is the same with anti-intellectualism.

          According to the Manila Standard lifestyle (2018), being smart is somewhat a curse rather than a blessing, it is because students offend and attack others for being smart.

          Smart-shaming locks and hinders people from improving and becoming better. So let's stop Smart-shaming. If you are insecure, build your own knowledge, a research, ask questions to enlighten ourselves. Let ourselves discover new things and have curiosity in everything. STOP SMART-SHAMING PEOPLE, BE A GOOD ONE.
