We are often told that knowledge is power. Except for at least two points in your career, this is mostly true.

Have you thought about how ignorance can be power too? I can think of at least two stages in a career when you can wield lack of knowledge as a form of power (Hre, I mean power in the neutral, the ability to influence others to do what you need sense, not in the petty dominating over others sense).

We’ll also talk about how you can wield ignorance throughout the rest of your career, too-- with Lampshading!
