Tacit Knowledge

Tacit Knowledge is knowledge that is difficult to write down or share verbally; it can only be learned by doing or by observing. It is skill, or what we know how to do, rather than facts. Examples include how to drive a car, how to speak Japanese, or how to dance tango. An individual learns tacit knowledge through his or her own personal experience, but acquiring this knowledge and passing it on to others requires interpersonal contact.
