Pity the smartest person in the room:

 

• They have to speak first and last.
• They have to correct what other people say.
• They have to choose sides, agreeing or disagreeing. (They can’t discover.)
• They have to find flaws in others’ work.
• They have to do most of the work, because others have learned it’s pointless to give the effort.
• They must never be caught not knowing something.

 

Each time I think I am – or need to be – the most intelligent, I discover two things: It requires massive effort and results suffer.

 

Perhaps the smartest person in the room is the one who has learned they’re not. If this is you, thank you for your leadership.
