    This thread brings to mind a phenomena I've run into with respect to interviews for technical jobs. There is a tendency to give technical quizzes, which became necessary after the 2000 tech bubble crash because lots of non-tech people got hired to do tech jobs, so answering a few technical questions is useful to filter out the utterly unqualified applicants. But ... the quiz can get overused, e.g., using the quiz to determine just how "expert" an applicant is in the field. The problem is that a real expert knows a ton of stuff you don't know, even if you are an expert in the same field, and likewise you know a ton of stuff the expert doesn't know. So you end up with two "experts", each believing the other "isn't really an expert" because "they don't know X, Y and Z," which happen to have been essential in one's own work. Both sides lose: the applicant loses by missing out on a potential job, and the employer loses because they're filtering out applicants that have essential knowledge they don't even realize they need.

    Real experts - those with real experience - understand the weaknesses of expertise, namely that expertise is specialized, limited knowledge, and it is all to easy to forget that one's expertise in one area does not translate into expertise in other areas, even if those areas are "closely related". Someone else, even a "mid-level" person, probably knows more than you about something.
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    Insightful.

    Yes, and I seriously doubt there will be many 'no' answers in this thread.

    No, not more intellectually superior than anyone.
    But I guarantee I'm the most huggable by a long shot!!!
    Huggability is totally important in this universe.
    It helps you work out the hugs that have been and hugs that are to come.
    It helps you discover new and inventive ways to hug and reasons to hug and I think it's sorely lacking trait in this world.
    Intellectual is a dime a dozen!
    I love putting myself in this thread because it makes everyone so uncomfortable!
    yay!

    Yes definitely.

    Edit: Edgar deleted his message in case anyone wonders how I can be more intellectually superior than myself.
