Takes one to know one

(Originally posted March 1, 2006)

Definition: The person talking about it knows what he's talking about, because he had
done it before, or was in similar situations before, or knows the person being discussed.

Example: The "good" hackers, known as "white-hat" hackers, are quite effective in
catching malicious hackers. After all, it takes one to know one.

(In this case, it means it takes a hacker to understand another hacker.)
