Random information on the term “Blockhead”:

Idiot was formerly a legal and psychiatric category of profound intellectual disability, in which a person’s mental age is two years or less, and he or she cannot guard against common dangers. Along with terms like moron, imbecile, and cretin, the term is now archaic and offensive,[1] and was replaced by the term “profound mental retardation” (which has itself since been replaced by other terms).

Nowadays, “idiot” is a derogatory term for a stupid or foolish person.

The word “idiot” comes from the Greek ἰδιώτης, idiōtēs ‘a private person, individual’, ‘a private citizen’ (as opposed to an official), ‘a common man’, ‘a person lacking professional skill, layman’, later ‘unskilled’, ‘ignorant’ from ἴδιος, idios ‘private’, ‘one’s own’.[2] In Latin, idiota was borrowed in the meaning ‘uneducated’, ‘ignorant’, ‘common’,[3] and in Late Latin came to mean ‘crude, illiterate, ignorant’.[4] In French, it kept the meaning of ‘illiterate’, ‘ignorant’, and added the meaning ‘stupid’ in the 13th century.[5] In English, it added the meaning ‘mentally deficient’ in the 14th century.[1]
