Does your confidence get you into trouble?

 

Confidence– it’s just a decoy– it’s the dog that barks because he doesn’t bite.Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, professor at University College London

As a healthcare professional you’re supposed to have the answers. But how often are you blind sided by your confidence? How often do you test your ideas?

In reality however, there is a very big difference between confidence and competence. Competent people are generally confident, but confident people are generally not competent. There are just good at hiding their incompetence and their insecurities– mostly because they are self-deceived themselves, so they generally think that they are much better than they actually are.Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, professor at University College London
