Error 'list' object is not callable

I was playing with the list() function so I can understand it better, but when I try to print the aaa list, this callable error comes by. Why can't I print it?

aaa = list('listo') print(aaa)

Error 'list' object is not callable

Before running aaa = list('listo') have you by any chance run something like: list = list('listo') ? If yes, then that has shadowed the built-in name list.
