Used to describe a situation or individual who cannot or refuses to see the big picture because of being sheltered and/or closed minded. This is the opposite of a frog in a field.
You have no idea what skills are required, as you have been a frog in a well for the last 30 years, stuck in the same old job with the same old skills. I have been a frog in a field jumping from job to job learning a vast amount of skills you have no idea about.

A frog's well is a common form of argument and is an informal fallacy. It's a common fallacy, where a broad generalized claim is made on the pretext of a small geographical area, ignoring the rest of the globe. One who engages in this fallacy is said to be "digging frog's well".
Statements like, "You know what! Sanskrit is the mother of all languages." are considered frog's well fallacy. The one who is making this kind of fallacious arguments, is digging frog's well.
