This list of four states of knowledge is also known as

  1. unconsciously incompetent
  2. consciously incompetent
  3. consciously competent
  4. unconsciously competent
I don't know where it comes from, but one of my friends and mentors mentioned it some time ago.

    It would seem that the what we're calling our respective lists should be switched. Mine pertains to knowledge in a particular domain while yours pertains to how well one does. To be sure, there is a correlation between knowledge and mastery, but being knowledgable does not necessarily imply being good and vice versa.
