Something to Think About


From a friend of great wisdom.

The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which people of low ability have illusory superiority and mistakenly assess their cognitive ability as greater than it is. The cognitive bias of illusory superiority comes from the metacognitive inability of low-ability people to recognize their lack of ability; without the self-awareness of metacognition, low-ability people cannot objectively evaluate their actual competence or incompetence.[1]

On the other hand, people of high ability incorrectly assume that tasks that are easy for them are also easy for other people.[2]

here is the simple translation :
Stupid people are too stupid to know that they are stupid. Stupid people think they can master any task.
Smart people are aware that they are smart, but realize their limitations.
Smart people expect that what is easy for them is easy for all.

Dunning-Kruger…..What a great user name that would be for this forum!



If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!
