Somebody who is capable of 'flashes of brilliance' usually performs at a very mediocre level, but occasionally when feeling inspired they are capable of incredible things. These are rare moments however. My 1st Psychiatric Consultant when I was a training Psychiatrist told me that. I never completed my Royal College of Psychiatrists exams and now work at Staff Grade Dr level. This means I'll never get to Consultant level and will always have a Consultant to answer to. I was lazy and this demonstrates that people like me are not cut out for the really great things or getting to the top of our field. We are smart however and can easily navigate our way around our difficult professional life without any real problems.
