>> Most people here think they smarter than pdoc
> Slippery slope? How could you know?

Thank you, gg, for questioning that assertion!

I think that in Beck's list of cognitive distortions, the reasoning given here ("I know thats true because Im one of them") might be an example of Overgeneralization: "If one instance is X, then the other instances are X."

FWIW, I think an example of Slippery Slope reasoning might be: "If you start thinking you have *some* info that your pdoc doesn't, you'll soon be thinking you have *all* the info and she doesn't have any!" (But there's a lot of overlap in these categories; ears hear distortions differently.)

I personally don't think it pays to evaluate anyone as "smarter" or "not as smart". Life is too complicated.

Now, "repetitious" is a different matter...;-)
