Paid in full is different from closed.  If you pay the total due on a credit card, you may continue to use that card again and again up to the credit limit (though going that high is unwise).  Closing an account mean's you no longer plan on using the card ever again and don 't care that your credit score takes a plunge.

It is foolish toi close accounts because circumstances may prevent you from ever getting any credit accounts in the future.  In today's credit oriented society, credit is necessary, and the more credit you have, the lower the interest rates you may have to pay.
