    I started the game with high intelligence so I thought I'd have to do another playthough to unlock this achievement.
    Fortunately that was not the case as I was able to lower all my stats using Adrena-Time withdrawal which gives -1 to all attributes. Once I reached the console on the bridge of hope I used about 10 of them a few seconds apart and eventually my intelligence was below average. Then I interacted with the console and I was able to choose the dumb option and skip the Hope myself right into the sun.

    Not sure if it matters but this happened on supernova difficulty. You could probably lower your stats more through hunger, thirst and lack of sleep.

    Great find from Throni360 - "You CAN do it with +3 intelligence! Just get the Permanent Concussion Flaw. You can get it by stepping on mines and shooting exploding barrels. Repeat it after every cooldown. Switch difficulty to hard if you already have three flaws (maximum on normal)."

    Edit: as others have pointed out, you can consume “Adrena-Time“ and suffer from the withdrawal which lowers all attributes by 1. This will allow you to reduce high intelligence down to enable the [Dumb] dialogue option required. Consume one at a time (max stack of 3), wait 15 seconds before consuming the next one, if required. You can see the impact by looking at your character stats.

    The following solution was taken from PowerPyx's trophy guide - full credit to PowerPyx.

    To earn this achievement you need to from the start of the game during character creation choose to lower your Intelligence stat to below average. This allows you to pick “Dumb” dialogue, which is a requirement for this achievement. Late in the game you will travel back to the Hope, which is the ship your character was awoken from. When you reach the front of the ship you will need to skip it to whichever story destination you’ve been working towards, and can choose to do it yourself or let ADA do it. To earn this achievement you need to specifically pick the [DUMB] dialogue option after saying that you’ll skip it yourself. You will then be shown a cutscene wherein you send the ship straight into the sun, giving you a game over and unlocking the achievement.

    In order to skip Hope into the sun, you have to lower your intelligence at the beginning of the game when creating your character so you have access to [dumb] conversation options. Then when skipping the Hope, tell Ada you'll do it yourself and use the [dumb] option to convince her.

    Credit to the above advice, all works well I just added a little step. I was at high so I bumped the play up to hard mode, shot the barrel just outside the door before the terminal (close enough to be hit) and then I took the adrena time every 15ish seconds. Inbetween those shots I added other chems into my inhaler and went to town on my inventory so that all the combined comedowns took me below average. Hopefully that helps a few people.
