Something I keep encountering in discussions is a behaviour that I am interested in Cauldron feedback and perspectives on. Everyone is ignorant on at least some things. Some people are what we commonly refer to as willfully ignorant on at least some things. People's awareness of their ignorance on any given thing may vary widely or be nonexistent (i.e. they may know they don't know, suspect they don't know to some degree, or not know that they don't know). There are a lot of possible combinations here and a lot of possible ways of engaging them.

The one I see that strikes me as counterproductive and possibly irrational is to assume that an ignorant person knows that they are ignorant and that they are willfully so. Comments? Thoughts? Observations?
