Minimize the curse of knowledge

You need to be conscious of the fact that people have different levels of knowledge than you.

  • Ask for feedback from the people you are communicating with, in order to confirm that they understand what you are saying.
  • Make sure that you explain the technical terms and concepts that you use as you are using it.

It is a cognitive bias that causes people to fail to account for the fact that others don’t know the same things that they do.

Having an understanding of how the curse of knowledge affects people’s thinking can help you anticipate their behavior more accurately.

Since we spend the majority of the time experiencing things from our own perspective, we struggle to imagine the perspective of others.

Use various debiasing techniques in order to help you account for the influence of the curse of knowledge.

The curse of knowledge is about the difficulty in communication that people have when they know something that others don’t, and not just about the difficulty experts have.
