Overcoming The Presumption Of Incompetence « From Above the Law: A Legal Web Site – News, Commentary, and Opinions f

"It may not be nice to assume that strangers are incompetent, and it may cause you some psychological stress. But consider two things: First, assuming the incompetence of others is the preferred way to go through life, because it’s likely to be accurate. Second, even if you can’t convince yourself that everyone you meet is probably inept, remember that people like me exist. When you’re working with someone new, there’s a chance that new person doubts your diligence, your intelligence, and your judgment. Overcome the presumption of your incompetence, and that may be the beginning of a beautiful friendship."

"The No. 1 challenge in building a great company is understanding yourself. Most companies reflect the strengths and weaknesses of their founders. Those that are more mindful of their own strengths and weaknesses tend to build more balanced businesses."

"We believe it borders on insanity to train intelligent and motivated people in our universities — often subsidizing their education — and then to deport them when they graduate. Many of these people, of course, want to return to their home country — and that’s fine. But for those who wish to stay and work in computer science or technology, fields badly in need of their services, let’s roll out the welcome mat."

That means hippocampal involvement in long-term memory may be less specific than previously thought and that short and long-term memory processes may depend on each other after all.
