Not necessarily correct, but conjecture - the less intelligent person may
ignore details that you or I would notice at once. His viewpoint is more
'simplistic' perhaps? Perhaps lesser intelligence can't see details at all..

What you relate here feels right. If you look at any system too closely you
get into the 'forest for the trees' syndrome.
