Quest only appear AFTER accepted "Data on the Old World" quest from Pascal! Wasted an hour to figure out how to start it!
The true wisdom was never on the surface. It doesn't matter if people treat you like a fool or not.
As cute as this mission was, I could not help but feel uneasy about the robot's behavior. He acted the fool for the purposes of fulfilling his agenda--to con the other less intellectual robots. So what does that reveal about his "true nature"? Suppose it doesn't matter at the end of the game...
It reveals that his "true nature" is smarter than everybody else's. It's the "idiots" initiating the events, not him. He's doing nothing wrong.

It all depends on how far he's gonna go with it. If he's just makin' a little extra cash to pay for college early then whatever. But, assuming he does end up taking it too far (like most would), that's considered conning people for your own unnecessary gain. And typically yes, such one's "true nature" would be seen as rather unpleasant and sinister, especially if he neglects or refuses to then educate the ones' he's fooling. And that, in my eyes, is very wrong indeed.
Spoiler(?): Cant help but think this is somehow how 9S is like. Fooling us into thinking he knows nothing but has already been deducing alot of things from the sidelines on the get-go. (like deducing 2B's real designation)

Except he doesn't do that... He's always very forthright about what he's thinking and what he's learned. The one exception to this is YoRHa's secret, and that's only because he's not sure on how to tell 2B about this life shattering news.

It's ok if you're smarter than everyone else. It's even ok to use your intelligence to make a little profit. As long as it's also with a purpose to teach a life lesson, or followed behind with the desire to share your knowledge with others, etc. Because in the end, a bad deed is far less severe if accompanied closely by a good deed of equal or greater social value. As long as there's balance, everything will be OK! \(^o^)/
