Expose your ignorance

Hello everyone and welcome back to another apprenticeship patterns blog post which is going to about expose your ignorance for CS 448. I think it’s an important pattern because I was in the same situation because I was uncomfortable with having the idea I didn’t know what I was doing and I didn’t want other people to think I don’t know what I do so I would stay quiet and try to guess what’s going on and it wasn’t working so well for me just like the article says. I now think it’s better to let people know what you are struggling on so that they can help you through your problems. When I first started my internship at an IT company, I first let everyone know that I didn’t know much or anything about IT, and everyone was very understandable and help me through it. I think if I would of stay quiet and act like I knew what I was doing it would of cause more harm than if I didn’t. I know that in ordered to learn more and grow, you must expose your weakness. I think this pattern does a good explaining that you should find your weakness and work on it and add more to the list as you go and don’t be a shame of it. I agree that you must show the process through your journey for the people that depend on you to know your stuff because if you don’t then you would show no promise. It’s also important to build a strong relationship with people as you are in your journey. All in all, I think this pattern was important because it highlights most of the stuff that should make you successful when on a journey to be a craftsman. I don’t disagree with anything in this article because most of the stuff that it goes, I try to follow every day because its good advice which I hear from successful people. I think it’s important to honest with your self and knows that you still learning and everyone doesn’t know everything and everyone is still learning
