re: Getting Trapped as an Expert Beginner VIEW POST


That article is great Michael - a really great read. Thank you for drawing it to my attention.

I think one of the key takeaways is that it doesn't matter at all how long you've been doing this work, how much you're getting paid, how much you've been promoted, or how epic your job title is. The industry is geared towards isolating people from their failures and their ignorance - we should make sure that we're aware of our limitations (but always pushing them further).

What is an 'expert beginner'? It's the inverse of impostor syndrome. An expert beginner is an impostor who doesn't know it - the Dunning-Kruger effect made flesh that kept getting promoted.
