“If you wish to improve, be content to appear clueless or stupid in extraneous matters – don’t wish to seem knowledgeable. And if some regard you as important, distrust yourself.”Epictetus
Epictetus was a stoic philosopher, and my favorite among them.
The message here is clear: if you want to learn or do better, don’t ever believe that you know. Those who think they know are unable to learn. I cannot find a reason to disagree here.
