That the most honest answer in the world is 'I don't know'. However, the older we grow the harder it is to accept it.

  1. But it can be kind of liberating to accept that you cannot possibly be expected to know everything!
    And then just say 'I don't know!'

  2. It sure is in a way :) but damn the ego that wont let life be easy :D

    Well I have to disagree here.

    My most common reply to any question is "I dont know"

    But warning signals are blinking in my brain nowadays...
    "Nikita where is ur tie???"
    I dont know
    "Naina why is ur shoe lying in the middle of the living room"
    I dont know


    ....looks like I have to start setting an example

    Ego thrives, concurs and fails. I am in the learning curve:-) But yes, I am not least abashed to admit 'I don't know' when I really don't:-)
