Excerpt

I’ve started trying to ask questions any time I don’t understand something, instead of worrying about whether people will think I’m dumb for not knowing it.

be skeptical! Don’t believe what people say even if they’re using fancy words!
Another hard thing is admitting that I don’t understand. I try to not be too judgemental about this
As a side effect, when I go to a talk about a subject I’m interested in, and I don’t understand something, I’m a lot more willing to ask questions like “so what IS <basic concept that wasn’t explained>?“. Usually people are really happy to answer!
A difficult thing about asking questions is that I have to be pretty careful about asking the right questions and making it clear which parts I know already.
Understanding and learning are more important than feeling smart.
