Ever feel like someone uses "I don't know how" as a superpower to avoid chores, responsibilities, or even basic adulting? Is there a chance they're actually wielding the secret weapon of "strategic incompetence?” Today we’re unpacking the psychology behind weaponized incompetence, and equipping you with strategies to navigate this tricky dynamic, whether it's with a family member, significant other, friend, or even a coworker! 

In this episode we:

  • Define weaponize incompetence and explain its real world implications 
  • Explain why people use this tactic, and which subtle signs to look for 
  • Provide practical advice for handling situations without losing your cool 

Hit our Homegirl Hotline…we’d love to hear from you!
