I Stop Reading Blogs for a Couple of Days

by Ken Houghton

And the Really Cool Discussions pass me by. (Which is as it should be.)

Fortunately, YouNotSneaky! has my (and your) back. And adds value, increasing returns with:
Socrates thought there were two, maybe three, kinds of people in the world and that you could arrange them in a hierarchy;

1. Those who don't know but think they know.
2. Those who don't know but know they don't know.

and then maybe some lucky ones;

3. Those who know and know they know.

There aren't many people in the 3rd category. But for some reason we always expect our models to move us from the 2nd category to the 3rd. And we're not satisfied if the movement is from the 1st to the 2nd.

and it gets better (and easier to understand, even without the artifice of order) from there.
