comment Learning of new concepts being impeded by an error in previous work
I like that advice at the end; its certainly something I'm going to try out more. But, I'm not entirely convinced that is that they're conditioned to feel right about everything. In this scenario, they are usually well aware that they are wrong, but it is an incorrect assumption of where they went wrong that causes problems.

@JoshGitlin As a programmer as well, I can say, I certainly fall victim there too. Overconfidence is an interesting idea, and on the other side of the coin it could also be underconfidence in the new material.
