  1. If a person’s awareness is the size of a beach ball, it will be almost impossible for that person to give an accurate assessment of themselves. If the person’s awareness increases then they can know judge themselves more discrimately BUT it will be in increments as the person becomes more consciously incompetent AND as they strive to improve and become more conciously competent. It’s frustrating how most people can’t be bothered AND makes for limited interesting conversation.

  2. Sorry for typos, as mentioned I can barely see the screen on Jim’s laptop AND Jenn has my computer monopolized BECAUSE some jerk spilled a drink on her keyboard at the end of May (I blame Jenn because she was probably having a party in her dorm room).

  3. How true. The least competent group of people that I have ever met and who have the most undeservedly inflated view of their competence have been judges. I once came upon an astoundingly incompetent judge in a washroom (he was drunk of course) staring in the mirror and loudly praising himself for how great and wonderful he was. Puke.

  4. When I think self-awareness, I think of the capacity, greater or larger depending on your blood sugar, and the drugs prescribed and unprescribed, and how slept you are – for accurate self-assessment. Everybody has moments when they behave oddly, rudely, out of character. Stupid people, however, are people who don’t challenge their own view of themselves, ever. They can be smart like hell about particulars, but dumber than a sackful of hammers about themselves.

    Self-awareness in some respects is a chimaera. I can have great powers of intellect and empathy, but not know a damned thing about the cancer cells proliferating in my body or have any insight into how my behaviours may be subsidizing stupidity elsewhere in the Great Chain of Being.
