curse of knowledge

When better-informed people find it extremely difficult to think about problems from the perspective of lesser-informed people

An example of the curse of knowledge is demonstrated in a classroom setting, where teachers, or subject experts, have difficulty teaching novices because they cannot put themselves in the position of the student. A brilliant professor may no longer remember the difficulties that a young student may be encountering when learning a new subject.
