First of all, this is not a post against experts. I’m one myself, I’m a competent language teacher. There are a dozen or so fields were I’m pretty knowledgeable, spirituality, current events, etc, but I wouldn’t consider myself an expert in these areas. But knowing that I have to also acknowledge that there are a zillion areas where I’m outright ignorant. ¡Ni modo! For me it’s very difficult to deal with people who have, because of their expertise in a given field, acquired power, as in the hierarchy of accompany, for example, or, let’s get the worst out of the way, a bureaucrat, and believe falsely that they are experts in life. THAT can be pretty pathetic. I’ve seen it, and believe me, it ain’t pretty. People who fall for that fallacy, leave the little niche in which they are experts and have acquired authority, to move into other areas, expecting to have the same competence. I mean somebody who runs the accounting department of a big company does not necessarily know how to set up his or her own business. That requires a set of totally different skills, only a few of which have actually anything to do with accounting. I’d rather stick to my talents.

Good evening dear Pilusch , i totaly agree with you , even thou i dont have such a high degree as yourself , i dont tend to be a person whom judges people and tagz them as if i had already know all there was to know about them , so i rather dont take fast decisions and rather like to experience more and learn from it and then start to think at the way certain people live their lives. Have a nice day.
