in reply to On Hubris

There is a theory I learnt in computer science a few years back.

It goes something like your confidence level in a particualar area reaches a peak the more you know about it, then falls the more you know, then rises again, kinda like a sideways, back-to-front "S"

Particularly in perl this has been the case for me. I think I'm pretty good, learn some more, look back, and go "geeze that was crap."

    You're probably referring to a general model of learning put forth by Psychologist Virginia Satir. This model describes how we're on a learning plateau, then go through a period of chaos before climbing to a new, higher plateau.

    Here is a short description of the Satir model, with a nifty picture.
