Is it weird that I've never ever had any of these doubts? Guess I'm just a more matter-of-fact and "it is what it is" person, I just do what I need to do in the best way possible and don't give it a lot of thought.

Which is not to say that I'm not aware that there's a thousand times more things that I DON'T know than things that I DO know - I simply tend to look more at the bright side, looking at the things I'm good at instead of the things I suck at.

I don't think that's weird. I'd say that it is uncommon but in a good way. I make an effort to stay pragmatic but sometimes those kinds of thoughts just pop in.
