Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for February 20, 2000
Radio engineer: You ever think of quitting, man? Mark: Every night. Radio Engineer: Me, too. Mark: If only I could find a little dot.com to take me in...Caller, you raise an interesting point about the importance of competence... It's long been a truism that the sign of an educated person is that he understands how little he knows. It's why so many smart people are insecure. Now there's evidence that that relationship might exist for competence in general. Incompetent people don't grasp their deficiencies. I would imagine this also holds true for social and emotional intelligence... I've noticed that the hallmark of the self-absorbed and boorish is that they haven't a clue that they present as such. You following this, caller? Caller (Donald Trump): No. Can we get back to me?
