Seven stages of ignorance

From: Enkin M. The seven stages of ignorance. Birth 2008;35:169–70

 

First stage: Innocence. You know you don’t know, but you’re sure you can learn…

Second stage: The facts. You know you still don’t know, but facts are facts.

Third stage: Naiveté. You know what to do, but don’t know how to do it.

Fourth stage: Frustration. You know you don’t know, but know that others know.

Fifth stage: Expertise, the danger stage. You think that you know, and others think that you know.

Sixth stage: Pyrrhic success. You know that you don’t know, but others think that you know.

Seventh stage: Ignorance. You know that you don’t know, others know that you don’t know, and it doesn’t matter.
