You Know Too Much

The-Curse-of-KnowledgeDid you know your knowledge can be a curse? The Curse of Knowledge makes personal expertise seem more widely known than it actually is and limits people’s ability to remember what it was like not to have the knowledge they possess. This curse is a failure to understand that others don’t know what you know… and everyone is susceptible to it. Consider this curse when preparing a presentation or report. Focus on what your audience knows first.
