It belies the belief that the knowledge is acquirable as much as one can and some knowledge is better than no knowledge.

A little knowledge in small character goes to head and turns it around. It is quite common to see a person of shallow achievement parading his little knowledge trying to make others believe that they are seeing wisest person of the land. He expects others to make obeisance to him and sing the praises of his greatness. If that does not happen the man of the little knowledge gets angry or sullen. He acts squeamish and deludes himself with the thought that the people are too stupid to understand the matters of wisdom.

This little knowledge showmanship is noticeable in chatty women and men of low origins. Their little knowledge fills up their small minds and they become swollen headed with pride. When confronted by a truly learned man such a person hides behind the wall, of cynicism and finds pleasure in throwing mud at the great one using his shallow knowledge as a spade. A real man of wisdom considers such mudslinging too below his dignity to react against. That makes the person of little wisdom consider it his victory.
