Could someone please explain this to question. I put down not important at all cause I thought it doesn’t matter as long as he is helping so him not being highly skilled wasn’t that important Name:  A2848A1B-8EC4-4577-919E-7A845B4A030D.jpg.jpeg

It is important because he is a junior doctor and definitely isn't the most qualified to be teaching his colleague skills; the key word isn't the helping part, it highlights the word: skills. While the doctor in question wants to help his colleague, he needs to recognise that he wouldn't be able to take complete control of his colleague's training and to single handedly help him succeed, if that makes sense.

How I would rationalise it is that the most important thing would be to help the colleague, so while understanding his own skills in the matter is important in the context of the problem; it does not directly help solve the conundrum itself so it's not very important.

No problem, hope it helps

For me the underlying principle here is always knowing your limits. If you always acknowledge that you might be wrong, that mistakes can always happen, that you arenot perfect, you won't be incorrect.

In actuality this question is kind of nonsense - they haven't said what he is struggling with and whilst it might be his knowledge of cardiology or something, most of what a junior doctor does day to day and things i would consider "skills" are purely organisational and practical, two things which actually a fellow junior doctor may be ideally placed to deal with. But when faced with a clearly leading question about recnognising your limits as above, i would always always attach high importance to being humble.
