Incompetence?

Is often code name for something else,
Or at least a blanket phrase for a number things:
Poor communication skills such as the inability to articulate what you can and cannot do,
Overstated ambition, where, in fear of being underestimated you take a bite of more than you can actually chew,
Or good old fashioned seizure of an opportunity that you really have no business in;
Wrong person for the job.
At other times its a mismatch between the expectations others have of us and the ones we have of ourselves,
And sometimes its as simple as we often think it is: just someone not wanting to do their work.

Like anything, when it comes to reasons for ‘incompetence’,
Especially from people that are of a different race, gender or socioeconomic background,
There is nuance.
