Maybe it was just something you didn't see when you were typing, but the correction is only for other people not to get confused

It takes one to know one.

"The person who expressed criticism has similar faults to the person being criticized. This classic retort to an insult dates from the early 1900s. For example, You say she's a terrible cook? It takes one to know one! For a synonym, see pot calling the kettle black." (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/ ... o+know+one)
I see both expressions as synonyms.
I'm sorry if I'm wrong. I wasjust trying to help.

Here in USA is a correct way, However, this is an expression and then I can not say if is correct in other English speaking countries.
Thanks everyone for different opinion and this is the way to improve your English.
