I have to argue with your poll, I have run into tons of "IT Professionals" but I have yet to meet a "Computer Expert" for no one can tell you every little thing about "every" piece of software/hardware.

I agree totally! Im a CIS Instructor and I refrain from saying I am an expert... a good point! But this is a self rating so I put both at the same level for this poll.

This field moves and advances so quickly NOBODY can know everything, and if somebody claims so... beware!

In Lake Woebegone, everyone is above average. Reading hardware reviews at Newegg, I learned that everyone is highly skilled. These very same people complain that their new shiny 1.5 terabyte drive is only 1.39 terabytes and they are going to return it for that reason.

Hmmmm... I work in an IT Department of a large university.

We have lots of people who seem to think they know all about everything (always the thing I seem to be working on), but really know squat.

Measured by the time to (as I usually take less of it) and ability in getting things working (I usually deliver something with few - or fewer errors) I am incredible. As the decades pass, I realize, I know more than most but certainly not more than everyone.

Ego's abound, but true greatness is not measured by the size!

(did I really say that?)!!!!!!!!!

I don't consider myself an expert by any means...but as a job title and holder of certifications...I do consider myself an IT Pro

I am not flaunting that I do...I just figured I would mention it

I'll say I'm an Advance User/Geek even tho I am an IT Professional. However I do not feel right saying that, I do not know everything and there is always something new to learn. So naturally I put myself one bar lower.

I could easily get most certifications concerning Microsoft, Cisco, and others. However, I am just way too lazy to bother. Sad I know. Already finished off my first Associates of Computer Science (major: Networking), and currently involved on my Bachelors for Security.

Don't ask me how I know most of the things I know....I just know it... O.O
