    1. We should extend the title of "scientist" to anyone who has spent a significant amount of time at the research bench designing experiments and contributing to the scientific literature.

    1. What allows us to persist in this belief is other people. In the case of my toilet, someone else designed it so that I can operate it easily. This is something humans are very good at. We’ve been relying on one another’s expertise ever since we figured out how to hunt together, which was probably a key development in our evolutionary history. So well do we collaborate, Sloman and Fernbach argue, that we can hardly tell where our own understanding ends and others’ begins.

      At the same the time "not knowing" is not seen as a net negative. It seems petty, unnecessary until disaster strikes. Then is the time you "wish" you knew more and had spent some time learning more. Other people's expertise is the cushion of air we float on through daily life. Our living quarters, our vehicles, our toilets all exist because of someone else's expertise.
