It's a common pattern and I have to watch out for it myself. Take something I know a lot about (e.g., thermodynamics). When I'm working with other people I instinctively feel that everybody in the world including uncontacted tribes in the Amazon should know at least 10% of what I know about the topic. Once somebody doesn't even show that crude level of knowledge then I figure they are either uselessly ignorant or intentionally obstructive. In reality, the average person will know virtually zero on the topic by my gut feel is that they should know more.
