A Wise Form of Self-Esteem

A reader of my website emailed me to say that he was proud that "I now realize I am smart."

Here's how I responded:

The art is in feeling you are smart while remaining open to learning from others and not showing off how smart you are.

On rereading that response to him, I thought you might find it helpful.

Excellent response. It reflects maturity. Now only if my colleagues in the federal government had the same outlook!

Don't all smart people know they are smart? I'm not smart at all and I'm certainly aware of it.
