"Your metacognitive fingerprint"

 INTERPERSONAL    :     SCIENCES

"Why are some people more self-aware than others? Studies show that metacognition is a relatively stable trait, so if you tested your metacognition today, it is likely to be similar if you do the same test again tomorrow. Strikingly, it also seems that metacognition is independent of IQ and general cognitive ability: your metacognition can still be in good form as long as you recognise you are performing badly at a task.
We still don't understand the origins of these individual differences, but one promising idea is that "explicit" metacognition is something we learn, based on feedback from our parents, teachers and social group.
A genetic "starter kit" may establish forms of self-monitoring early in life and then our parents and teachers finish the job. But even in adulthood, these things aren't totally fixed (see main story), so this is one kind of fingerprint you can change." p.38.

I heard Stephen Fleming on the radio when the associated book was released last year - must buy a copy.

Still reading and enjoying 'Human Landscapes' with posts to follow.
