    1) People believe in their own capabilities and the capabilities of others.
    2) People believe in their own capabilities, but doubt others’.
    3) People believe in others’ capabilities, but doubt their own.
    4) People doubt their own capabilities and the capabilities of others.


    Reminded me of the four levels of competence. There is some kind of pattern in the above with 2 and 3. I guess I feel in general 1 is something to strive for, but in reality it is in flux.

    1) Unconscious competence
    2) Concious competence
    3) Concious incompetence
    4) Unconscious incompetence

    Interesting association w/ "locus of control."

    It is in some ways an extension of that concept as to what degree you believe the locus of control of others is, but also to what degree they can wield a given skill set, or bear/handle certain circusmstances (in non-occcupational terms)

    As a project manager, and an ESTP, I am innately familiar with this concept.

    It is in my DNA, so to say, because it is necessary for me to determine who can do what as best as possible at the drop of the hat if I am to pull off what I am typically assigned to, or choose to do.

    I'll get back to you on that.
    To the degree I've discussed it thus far it is second nature to me.
    I have to think a bit before I can make any binding comments on whether I think the other three statements are "standalone" or "truly integrated" with the other three.

    Big Ups to mah' Sistah CzeCze!!!!

    Hope you're doing great, girlie!!!!!

    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I'm a 3 or 1, depending on the day. I don't tend to doubt other people, I tend to want to believe that they are doing their best for the most part. As for me, I know for a fact when I'm not reaching my potential and will beat myself up about it.

    That's one way of putting it

    I'm kinda the same. It's kinda easy to recognise just how much fuzzy logic there is in this world when you know what to look for. I would say that I'm more forgiving when it comes to people I'm close to though.

    I have the mindset of all four of the categories. I think #2 and #3 characterize me the most. Today at work I had an instance when a library patron asked me a question completely beyond the area of my expertise and comfort zone. My instinct is to trust that my colleagues know better than I do and refer the question to them. Then later that same day, another patron asks me for help on the computer and he got the impression that somehow I underestimated his knowledge because I was showing him things he already knew about.
