The only problem with your analogy is that, IRL to know if a person is good at what they do, you have to be decent at it yourself.
Interesting last observation there !
Could you at least be decent enough to know a good choice from a bad one without knowing so much, you could do the job yourself ?
I have noticed, if you get a stupid CEO, they just hire idiots, who hire other idiots, until the company goes bust !
Well if you have some experience with developing you can usually tell when someone is more knowledgable than you are. That's a good indication. In an interview, I tend to find it best to have a conversation, talk about concepts, ask how someone would build a piece of software. They don't have to agree with your point of view, as long as they can explain it.
You can still make mistakes (some people sound knowledgable but aren't, or can't convert it to good code).
