Professionals: Present a confident exterior, consult with colleagues/references in private

Some good replies to the post "Conflict of Interest: On Confidence, and Confidence."

One of things that stood out to me is how a couple commenters assumed that because they're reasonable, other people should also be reasonable. I mean, if a doctor checks something carefully in a reference book in front of me, I think that's a good thing. You probably do too.

But many people don't think that way.

A lot of people have unrealistic expectations of the world, especially of professionals like doctors.

There was a brilliant comment by Kate Johnson, who is a veterinarian. Kate writes -

Why I Don't Take Medicine

I'm aware that admitting / proclaiming that I don't take medicine sets me up to be bucketed in with the nutty religious people who handle snakes and let their kids die on rare occasions before allowing them to go to the hospital.

That's not me.
