The Dunning Kruger Effect

The Dunning Kruger Effect is a cognitive bias that makes people believe they are smarter and more capable than they actually are.

The effect is related to people’s general inaptitude to recognize their lack of ability.


We see this every day.

It seems that ignorance is indeed bliss...

I watched the earlier Bonhoeffer video, so of course the YouTube algorithm suggested this.

Yes, as are many in academia.    That old saying applies very well here.    

Those who can, do.    Those who can’t, teach.

No offense intended for teachers who actually teach real subject matter and teach well.

So in acquiring the needed knowledge to be confident in your belief you may have accepted knowledge based on an assumption.  Would you be willing to challenge the knowledge when so many have accepted that knowledge and are so confident in it that they do not question it? 

I, for one, am challenging it for I found that the current knowledge out there has been based on an assumption.
