Why it’s so hard to see our own ignorance, and what to do about it. Intellectual humility is simply “the recognition that the things you believe in might, in fact, be wrong,” as Mark Leary, a social and personality psychologist at Duke University, tells me. But don’t confuse it with overall humility or bashfulness. It’s not about being a pushover; it’s not about lacking confidence or self-esteem. The intellectually humble don’t cave every time their thoughts are challenged.
