What you're describing is intellectual honesty, and it's such an important trait πŸ’― .

My favorite people to work with are those who aren't afraid to say "I don't know" or, better yet, "I don't know, but I know where to look".

A few weeks ago, I interviewed someone named AustΔ—ja about how she got her first developer job. She switched to development later in life (after a career in law and events). Even though she was a new programmer, her soft skills were seasoned and, in my view, they propelled her through the interview process and her first few weeks. Your advice is similar to hers - probably because it works ✊!

Great post!
