Those who are familiar with the Dunning Kruger effect: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning…3Kruger_effect Quote: The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias manifesting in two principal ways: unskilled individuals tend to suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly rating their ability much higher than is accurate, while highly skilled individuals tend to rate their ability lower than is accurate. …will appreciate this latest installment from Dunning: We Are All Confident Idiots Quote: in many areas of life, incompetent people do not recognize—scratch that, cannot recognize—just how incompetent they are, Quote: What’s curious is that, in many cases, incompetence does not leave people disoriented, perplexed, or cautious.
