A while ago I came across a reference to a disturbing psychological phenomenon that leaves one unable to recognize one's own incompetence. Now, thanks to Errol Morris, I have a name for it: Anosognosia. According to wikipedia, it is "...a condition in which a person who suffers disability seems unaware of or denies the existence of his or her disability."

Unknown unknowns - I knew they were important.
