A group of German researchers have found a gene that they believe prevents learning:

The test showed that men carrying the A1 mutation responded less to negative feedback, implying that they were less successful at learning to avoid mistakes than the men in the other group. Brain imaging of both groups also supported this result, revealing that during the learning sessions the men carrying the A1 mutation had diminished neurological activity in the posterior medial frontal cortex (pMFC), an area in the brain involved in monitoring errors.
So it's possible people really ARE that dumb.
