Judgment and Experience

An interesting quote about judgment and experience:

(attributed to either Will Rogers orĀ Mark Twain.)

Good judgment comes from experience and a lot of that comes from bad judgment

Good judgment comes from experience and a lot of that comes from bad judgment

It sounds a bit like the new graduate seeking employment: Getting a job is the way to get experience but you need experience to get the job. (Equals frustration)

But I think I agree with the quote. What do you think?

  • Is this a true statement?
  • How does “good judgment” relate to wisdom?
  • Should we attempt to judge poorly so that we will attain good judgment?
