I’m having a not-so-good day today, so the post will be short. This is a question that’s been floating around in my brain for a while now. Why are people so afraid of the phrase “I don’t know”? This is especially true of people with extensive levels of higher education. Many of them refuse to admit they don’t know something. They go to great lengths speaking on topics they know nothing about, pretending to be an expert. I don’t get it. Sometimes you don’t know things. There’s no shame in that. Just admit you don’t know and ask somebody or something (Google).
