Confessions of a Thinkering Sort — 2 Comments

  1. I don’t think that any reasonably smart person doesn’t have these self-doubts – I know that I lived for many years in terror of being ‘found out’ as nowhere near as competent and intelligent as those around me seemed to think I was. And reading Stephen Fry’s autobiographies – he also confesses his utter panic at what might happen when people realise his shortcomings… I wonder whether it might be linked to the truism of the more that you know, the more that you realise that you don’t know and that just makes so many of us want to run shrieking for the safety of a cupboard where nobody can find out how deficient we truly are!

    • There is definitely some truth to that, mon ami! I am thrilled that there is always more to learn, and that today’s Internet makes it even easier to find things of interest, but that doesn’t make me feel any less at times.

      I could say more, but first I’ve got to rescue the brain from under Snot Mountain… oh pollen. <3
