[2] "Why People Fail to Recognize Their Own Incompetence".

Oops, That's behind a paywall, and a more recent variant.

Though the corollaries (People fail to recognise their own skills, and hence they/we mishandle our communications) are just as (IMHO more) important.

I believe this is the on-line version of the original 1999 paper

The section 5.1. "The Burden of Expertise" discusses my point above.
"they [Experts] fail to realize that their proficiency is not necessarily shared by their peers."
