Opinions

Would you assume that you know more about a particular subject than the person next to you, even though though the person next to you once had a career in that subject and the most that you have done is read maybe a few articles or an opinion piece?

I try to shut up when I know the person that just corrected me has a LOT more experience in the area than I do. I would suggest others do the same.

The need to verbally spank those people can at times be so, so difficult.

This wasn't even someone expressing their opinion to me. It involved myself and two others. The "idiot" was espousing on a medical research to a...wait for it...a medical researcher. Not a doc, someone that actually does medical research. Sigh.
