Bias Study: The Dunning – Kruger Effect

This is the sixth post in the Study

So I’m not going to lie, I had no idea what this was when I saw it on the list.

“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool” -William Shakespeare

But then my fried Wikipedia came to the rescue. I was not disappointed.

The D-K effect is when someone with low ability thinks they are better than they are.

I’m sure you have never seen this before in your life right? Of course you have, we all have. So how do you combat this?

Realize that you don’t know everything, and there is always a bigger fish.
