A fear paradox

Standard

I look at people who are socially unhesitant to dive in despite a great ineptitude, and I think, “you ought to be more shy!”

Then I look at people who are socially avoidant despite eventually showing great skill, and I realise they could say the same about me.

I wonder if somehow fear is proportional to ability.

If that’s true in general, I ought to do an amazing PhD.
