Note 22

Confidence is a passive sign of experience, while competence can only be measured within an active situation and not beforehand. In other words, simply because someone is experienced doesn’t mean they are also competent; some parents thinks simply because they are parents (experience) that they are also good parents, or know what is good for their kids (competence). On the contrary, although competence cannot be achieved without experience, not all experiences make us competent or guarantee that we are competent by desire and effort, and not by chance.
