Men are Four:

He who knows and knows not that he knows.
He is asleep; wake him.

He who knows not and knows not that he knows not.
He is a fool; shun him.

He who knows not and knows that he knows not.
He is a child; teach him.

He who knows and knows that he knows.
He is a king; follow him.

-Chinese proverb-

This should be added:

He who knows, when he should know not.
He is a KPC; whack him!
