MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

It’s a type of cognitive bias whereby people who are incompetent at something are unable to recognize their own incompetence in it.

This is why a person, despite his lack of knowledge or experience in a specific domain, can still think he’s amazing at it.

 Yuval Noah Harari

"The scientific revolution has not been a revolution of knowledge. It has been above all a revolution of ignorance. The greatest discovery that launched the scientific revolution was the discovery that humans do not know the answers to their most important questions."

The Expanding Map of Knowledge and Ignorance

You are a student of life for life. Your knowledge is expanding, but so is your ignorance, for as you continue to learn, there will always be so much more for you to further explore. 

Why you should create your own map:

  • It helps you identify your knowledge gaps in the areas that actually matter to you
  • It highlights your strengths. The closer you are to mastery, the more strengths you have in the specific area of discussion.
  • It gives you a holistic view of where you stand today so you can phase out the steps for what’s ahead.

Ignorance Of Our Own Ignorance

The Dunning-Kruger Effect is the mind's tendency to overestimate one’s own knowledge or competence and to underestimate one’s own ignorance. It usually occurs when the information is unknown to us, with one peculiar complication: The information that something is unknown to us is also unknown to us.

The Dunning-Kruger Effect is essentially a meta-layer of ignorance. Example: drivers who pride themselves as being competent and safe drivers making highly unsafe driving errors.

Creativity: An Open Process

The element of surprise is something creative professionals do not have in their radar, as they are having the ‘constraints’ of knowledge, expertise, skill and past experience to start any work.

Real creativity is borne out of a certain ignorance, being oblivious of the boundaries that surround us. One has to see a creative process with fresh eyes and without the usual constraints and assumptions.
