IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
Beginner's luck does not actually exist. Most of the time the beginner has a similar skill that aids them. Or the novice could be new to the task, but have tried it before and failed repeatedly.
To the beginner, anything Is possible. They are not encumbered by experience and are willing to try out many possibilities and solve problems creatively.
The expert has narrowed down the possibilities and can become too comfortable with their own perspectives.
When you are good at something, you're under pressure to perform at your level. This can put you under pressure.
A novice doesn't care particularly how they perform and don't feel any pressure to perform.
Most experts developed some sort of muscle memory for the things they do. This is extremely useful for repeat tasks, but when up against a novice or when in an unusual situation, hard-wired routines can cause them to act quickly without thinking. This routine does not fit the task and can cause failure.

We hold on to different kinds of memories.
By studying people with amnesia, it seems that short-term and long-term memories don't form in precisely the same way, nor do declarative and procedural memories.
Memories are held within groups of neurons called cell assemblies. They fire as a group in response to a specific stimulus, such as recognising your friend's face.
The more neurons fire together, the more the interconnection of the cells strengthen. We experience the nerves' collective activity as a memory.
