Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the Dunning Kruger Effect. America’s business model!
The Dunning-Kruger effect is an example of cognitive bias in which “people reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices, but their incompetence robs them of the metacognitive ability to realize it”. They therefore suffer an illusory superiority, rating their own ability as above average.
OMG All this time rantng on the interwebs and someone actually came up with the theory!! DAMN!
