I completely agree. I still fail to see a NEED for this, but you are on the mark.
If by "I still fail to see a NEED for this", you mean "I don't feel this need myself", well...maybe. Maybe you've never been a newbie at anything, or you've always been enormously capable at everything you tried right from the start (or at least, you thought you were). Maybe you've never felt the need to seek for security when you felt shaky ground underfoot. It's pretty normal to feel this way, though, and also normal to behave in ways to try and feel more comfortable. Feeling and doing otherwise is something that people have to work towards, not something they're born with.
