A capuchin monkey sticks its tongue out, appearing to mock the superior cognitive flexibility of monkeys as compared to humans.

“When it comes to being willing to explore more efficient options to solving a problem, monkeys exhibit more cognitive flexibility than humans, according to a study by Georgia State University psychology researchers. “We are a unique species and have various ways in which we are exceptionally different from every other creature on the planet,” said Julia Watzek, a graduate student in psychology at Georgia State. “But we’re also sometimes really dumb. […] I think we’re less and less surprised when primates outsmart humans sometimes”.
