TIL: The Dunning-Kruger Effect

in #til6 months ago

I didn't always enjoy learning. As I've gotten older, education is something I've grown to greatly appreciate. I'm not sure if this is common knowledge or if there is such thing as common knowledge, but today I discovered The Dunning-Kruger Effect.
Wikipedia kindly provides this definition.
-In the field of psychology, the Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which people with low ability at a task overestimate their ability. It is related to the cognitive bias of illusory superiority and comes from the inability of people to recognize their lack of ability.
