…..you’re ignorant in other things.
You can’t be an expert in everything. Most times, you’re an expert in one thing – maybe even two things. You tell me if you’re an expert in more than two things. That’s amazing.
Experts are amazing. I’m a fan of experts. I read a ton of experts. I want to be an expert one day. As you can tell by the url, I’m just a specialist. I like being just a specialist. I might even be a generalist.
So if you’re an expert in something, you have to be ignorant in other things – many things. Claiming expertise in something is also claiming ignorance in many other things. If you take on the identity of an expert, you also take on an identity of an ignoramus.
I’ve never thought about that.
