Let me reply to you point-wise:
Hence, you need to introduce differentiation when the mouse pointer hovers over the icon.
As you said, skill maps should be used to "find areas that I want to work on".
I have mostly finished the first part of say, Algebra and Geometry (except for a few that I find difficult or dont want to work on).
But everytime I re-visit the maps, I have to re-confirm this.
On a side note, we are talking about a very WIDE range of skills here. Questions on Brilliant range from the merely interesting to Olympiad / JEE level. With this wide a range of skills, it is next to impossible that everyone will be able to solve everything.
By quantifying what is obvious, you are more likely to encourage rather than discourage what is in any case an intelligent audience.
I could also argue, for the sake of argument, that the very existence of a site like Brilliant, with its ease of access to difficult content otherwise not found outside of Olympiads discourages people who are not good enought to solve those problems.
