QotD: Ignorance Begets Confidence

Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than knowledge.
--Charles Darwin





Imagine being lost in the wilderness with a group of 10. Who is the most confident about which way you should go? Always an interesting test.)

(Didn't mean to but both knowledge and confidence tags just created. Not sure I will ever stop creating new tags, sorry. Follow a parallel tag to track the idea farther back. This journal is a form of mind map.)

i'd say the most confident would be the thief with the most food/water in his belly

I know some really good outdoors people. And I don't tend to know idiots.

But as has been said many times before, idiots tend to have the least ability to assess their own capabilities.

I don't tend to be lost. :D
