We often use the word ignorance when we talk about people who choose to ignore advice and guidance. A better word is amathia.

Its meaning is disputed but is more about wilful blindness, and has been defined as the opposite of wisdom.

Ignorance is not knowing; Amathia is not learning. It’s OK to be ignorant – it’s not OK to be amathic.
