“If you meet an idiot, he is the idiot. If you meet an idiot everyday, you are the idiot.”
Usually I’ve found its easy to spot my technical or knowledge short falls. It’s much harder to spot shortfalls with my problem solving approach, intra-personal or interpersonal skills. Perhaps because we don’t approach these as subjects in school. In these scenarios, the “idiot compass” works great.
Experiences that make me believe that the entire world around me is an idiot are clues to find the next topic to learn about.
