Tweet: The conditions for having expertise

According to Daniel Kahnman The conditions for having expertise are really fairly specific.

1) You have to be in a world that is regular where there are rules to be picked up. Because if you’re in a chaotic world where there are no rules, then you are not going to develop expertise.

2)Then you must have an opportunity to learn the rules and that takes a long time.That takes many instances and you need feedback from reality about whether your guesses were correct or wrong.And, that feedback has to be rapid.
3)If the feedback is delayed, you’re not going to learn. Now, if you’re in a regular world and you have many opportunities to learn about that world with immediate feedback, you will eventually develop expert intuition.
