Learning from Others

People Who Know More Than You

People Who Know Less Than You

  • Highlighting issues, questions, and problems that may be more important than you previously realized,
  • Providing opportunities for you to review with them what you already know, and thereby gain new insights or syntheses that previously escaped you,
  • Sharing valuable information they have that you don’t, perhaps on a peripheral or even unrelated topic.

People With Highly Specialized Knowledge

People Who Won’t Share What They Know

  • Observations they allow,
  • Answers to questions, carefully phrased to avoid arousing their suspicions,
  • Other people who interact with the close-mouthed person, and
  • Your own research, starting from whatever little bits you have learned.
