How, then, can you tell when you’re dealing with a genuine expert?
Real expertise must pass three tests.
First, it must lead to performance that is consistently superior to that of the expert’s peers.
Second, real expertise produces concrete results. Brain surgeons, for example, not only must be skillful with their scalpels but also must have successful outcomes with their patients. A chess player must be able to win matches in tournaments.
Finally, true expertise can be replicated and measured in the real world.
Before practice, opportunity, and luck can combine to create expertise, the would-be expert needs to demythologize the achievement of top-level performance, because the notion that genius is born, not made, is deeply ingrained.
That’s all a lot to digest but it what makes an expert and METal is filled with them and this week’s METal, four experts will teach us their trade. Get your notepads ready because call is in session this weekend!
