The Four Stages of Competency

In psychology, the four stages of competence relate to the psychological states involved in the process of progressing from incompetence to competence in a skill:

Written Description

Unconscious Incompetence:
The individual neither understands or knows how to do something, nor recognizes the deficit or has a desire to address it.

Conscious Incompetence:
Though the individual does not understand or know how to do something, he or she does recognize the deficit, without yet addressing it.

Conscious Competence:
The individual understands or knows how to do something. However, demonstrating the skill or knowledge requires a great deal of consciousness or concentration.

Unconscious Competence:
The individual has had so much practice with a skill that it becomes "second nature" and can be performed easily (often without concentrating too deeply). He or she can also teach it to others.
