Would you agree that most people, after completing their education, stop thinking? That is, do they pretty much stop learning new things (other than some necessities, like how to perform a job task or how to pay taxes)?
Input is appreciated.

Yes and no. Going to college changes the way you think. The mind of the college student is constantly expanding. After college, most people specialize, and seldom consider things that are not necessary for day to day survival. Specialists continue to learn things in their field, but an engineer (for example) will seldom think of his introductory psychology course and how his mind was opened by said course.
1. I already googled it.

2. Give me an argument. Spell it out. "You're wrong," is not an argument.

I'd say the opposite. While in an academic setting nobody thinks for themselves or think originally. They solely think about what has been taught to them and how to remember it for an eventually pointless test. In real life you have to think about how to life by yourself and nobody tells you how to do that.
