Answers
The Scarecrow believes he can't be smart because he doesn't have anything in his head other than straw. He believes he will be able to think and have intelligence if he has a brain. The Wizard fills the Scarecrows head with pins, and those pins represent an ability to think. However, the Wizard points out that "babies have brains," but they have to gain experience and grow before they can become intelligent.
