Read on, friends:
Sounds right to me. You?"The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias wherein relatively unskilled individuals suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly assessing their ability to be much higher than is accurate. Dunning and Kruger attributed the bias to the metacognitive inability of the unskilled to recognize their own ineptitude and evaluate their own ability accurately. Their research also suggests that conversely, highly skilled individuals may underestimate their relative competence, erroneously assuming that tasks that are easy for them also are easy for others.The bias was first experimentally observed by David Dunning and Justin Kruger of Cornell University in 1999.Dunning and Kruger have postulated that the effect is the result of internal illusion in the unskilled, and external misperception in the skilled: 'The miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others.'"* (emphasis added)
Yep, "illusory superiority" "...the metacognitive inability of the unskilled to recognize their own ineptitude and evaluate their own ability accurately." Hello!! But, it takes two to tango, doesn't it? Thus, for one "suffering" ("enjoying"?) the Dunning-Kruger effect, there is the requirement that another, a third party, recognizes it and does something about it.
Look, nothing more needs to be said...does it? Yet, here we are...and here we remain.
