Donald Prothero's blog post on the Dunning Kruger Effect:  Stupid are cocksure, intelligent not so.

We're all familiar with the Dunning-Kruger effect, where people who are unskilled think that they are great experts, whereas true experts tend to be more modest in their self-assessment.

Stupid will go full steam ahead toward that ten mile high brick wall of reality. The hit will be catastrophically heard and seen. 'Well, who put that there?' :)

Smart people underestimate themselves; ignorant people think they’re brilliant. It’s a cognitive bias called the Dunning-Kruger effect, where the highly skilled assume that things they find easy are.

Dunning-Kruger Effect: Why People Remain Incompetent

TED-Ed commissioned us to make a video to accompany their lesson about "The Dunning Kruger effect" by Mr David Dunning. This effect is a cognitive phenomenon wherein people of low ability suffer from illusory superiority. The aim of this film is to help us to discover wether we are as good at things as we think we are.   e r

Legit.  Dunning-Kruger Effect.  Also love how psychopaths easily acquire monetary gain on account of having no moral compass. The most prominent source of societal ills IMO.  Also why I have a semi-rational bias against people of extreme affluence.  HOW did you acquire that money?  Odds are it involved a lot of fucking other people over.   /rant Tony Abbott. The Lot.

what the Dunning-Kruger effect is and isn’t: Unfortunately, Kruger and Dunning never actually provided any support for this type of just-world view; their studies categorically didn’t show that incompetent people are more confident or arrogant than competent people. What they did show is this:

A growing body of psychology research shows that incompetence deprives people of the ability to recognize their own incompetence. To put it bluntly, dumb people
