But on average they will not be.
If you repeat the experiment 100 times with different random people, the guesses of the people without blindfolds as a group will have been more accurate.

But on average surgeons will be more confident.
If we're talking about 100 random surgeons vs. 100 random people with other (non-medical) professions.

So you don't think it's wise to keep the characteristics of target audience in mind when explaining something?
That tells me something about the kind of teacher you are then.

@Heliotrope

No, they may and they may not be you cant correlate randomness or guessing.

It will be obvious to everyone with a brain that:

- People wearing a blindfold will be worse at guessing someone's age
- Surgeons will be more confident about performing surgery than, well, everybody else
- Yes, to communicate effectively you always attune the message to the recipient of that message

Don't waste more of your time on the troll.
