But doing something terribly stupid doesn't make the person themselves stupid. Bright folks constantly forget to put on their seatbelt, cross the street without looking both ways, or hit reply-all when they really meant to reply to one person. Why? According to Heather Butler, an assistant professor of psychology at California State University, it's because smart people aren't all that smart. In an article for Scientific American, Butler talks about the subject of why smart people behave foolishly by differentiating between intelligence and critical-thinking skills. She suggests that intelligence, which is often measured by IQ test scores, is largely unrelated to critical thinking, "a collection of cognitive skills that allow us to think rationally in a goal-oriented fashion and a disposition to use those skills when appropriate."

Butler isn't the only one who believes this. University of Waterloo psychologist, Igor Grossmann, and his colleagues also argue that most intelligence tests fail to represent our real-world decision-making and ability to interact with others.

Another reason behind this issue could be arrogance. Smart people tend to think they are smarter (and better) than everyone. Professor Andre Spicer refers to this as the self-serving bias: "Not everyone can be above average — but we can all have the illusion that we are... We collect all the information we can find to prove ourselves right and ignore any information that proves us wrong. We feel good, but we overlook crucial facts. As a result, the smartest people ignore the intelligence of others so they make themselves feel smarter." Because of this, people might rationalize their mistakes to themselves, elevating their abilities and luck, and believe that they're somehow protected from misfortunes.

This works but you have to have the heat on really low and flip the tortilla quickly, watching it very carefully.

Your suppose to keep it moving, turning it as it heats up. You don't even need the whole burner, just the corner. Granted there are other better options to heat tortillas, if you pick this way, at least do it right.

Out here in the hinterlands, they are still in use. Safety tip- always keep the area clean and don't leave anything sitting there. When you are done cooking, double check the burners are off. If you are too fukked up for whatever reason, it is better to go to bed hungry, than cause a problem for tomorrow.

Well, to be kind of fair...? We do it that way here in New Mexico too occasionally, but only on gas stoves. Sometimes we don't bother with a pan or comal, we just light the match and throw it on the stove. Obviously this wont work on an electric stove (throw a pan on the stove first)... but it could just be habit? (Also as a PSA: if you are microwaving your tortillas you aren't getting them at their best, cook them on the stove.)

As long as you keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn, and you make sure the tortilla is dry before placing it on the burner, this wouldn't happen. This tortilla must have been damp before it was placed on the burner.
