18 The Villain The Curse of Knowledge Lots of research in economics and psychology shows that when we know something, it becomes hard for us to imagine not knowing it. As a result, we become lousy communicators.

19 The Villain: The Curse of Knowledge  You know things that others don’t know and you can’t remember what it is not to know.  The Curse of Knowledge might be a barrier to successful negotiations, because it leads us to believe (falsely) that our “subtle” signals are being received correctly by the other party  TAPPERS and LISTENERS

20 The Great Cruelty of the Curse of Knowledge The better we get at generating great ideas, new insights and novel solutions, in our field of expertise, the more unnatural it becomes for us to communicate those ideas clearly. That’s why knowledge is a curse.

21 The Curse of Knowledge  People tend to think that having a great idea is enough, and they think the communication part will come naturally. We are in deep denial about the difficulty of getting a thought out of our own heads and into the heads of others.  It’s just not true that, “If you think it, it will stick.”
