Illusory Superiority


I’ve been pondering upon the Dunning-Kruger effect among others in the recent days. It is easy to observe Dunning-Kruger in action in other people. In myself it has been much harder to notice this in action despite my best efforts.

Humility as a habit and guiding value does help though.

Another interesting point of view is the culture: when we are in the culture we know and those we are not just seem to be so outside.

And those who come from outside, think they know, but we know they don’t.

This is kind of awesome and scary thought at the same time.

Where does your illusory superiority lie?
