Replying to LO28453 --
I have a version - albeit with the final two reversed so it goes
Uncon Incompetent - he who knows not and knows not that he knows not, is a
fool- shun him
Con Incompetent - he who know not and knows that he knows not is ignorant
- teach him
Unconc Competent - he who knows and knows not that he knows is asleep -
Conc Compet- he who knows and knows that he knows is a wise man - follow
This comes from an Arab proverb which means that it is probably very old!!
With my colleagues we have argued about which is the better sequence.
Since the one you showed in you message is more common we have added a
fifth stage called Mastery -indicating the ability to pass on the skills
[which is not necessarily the case with unconscious competence].
