At the opposite end of the spectrum are people with great cognitive ability but poor metacognitive ability. These people are proclaimed geniuses at a young age for acing every test and getting great SAT scores.

They are arrogant, fail to learn from mistakes, and don't understand the nuances of personal relationships; showing disdain for persons with lower cognitive ability."
I read this and think "I know people like that." But then I get a sneaking suspicion that maybe I have those tendencies as well...
note to myself: metacognition; an interesting concept. I think my metacog is better than my ... duh, well, all the rest. In fact, I almost lost John's comments on this page, but I remembered a path to find it, but just barely.
Reminds me of the old yarn: He that knows that he knows that he knows, Knows!
I think there are many kinds of intelligence.
Is having an Adobe reader to search all your pdf journal articles a kind of metacognition? I do pretty well that way; can't remember the article, but Adobe finds it for me. :) -j
