Our Insight Is Constrained

WE LEARN WHO WE ARE IN practice, not in theory. We are not as good as we think we are at just intuiting our abilities or by simple introspection. Our insight into ourselves is constrained by the roster of our previous experiences. We actually have to do stuff, and then reflect on it.
