it turns out that people with real talent tend to underestimate just how good they are.

The root of this bias is that clever people tend to assume other people find things as easy as they do, when actually this is their talent shining through.


so, the reason i feel like an idiot at times is because i'm not? :huh:

interesting article...

at times i really do feel like an idiot, which aggravates me because according to my iq test results i'm not an idiot...this aggravation pushes me to figure out why i can't figure something out...

and the part about underestimating abilities...i'm always telling people "it can't be that hard, i can do it"...i've always figured that if i can figure something out i can't be the only one that can...and now my head hurts :lol:

I've posted about this it's a really cool effect. Remember wisest is the man who know he does not know.

This is a phenomenon I run into all the time during my activism as a promoter of science. Too many people are too quick to dismiss anything that they can't instantly understand. Too often, they like to fall back on the idea that it's impossible to know what's true, and harp on the fact that science has been wrong before. They forget that when science has been wrong, it was always replaced with newer, more complete theories. The lack of a 100% understanding of something doesn't give you the freedom to invent whatever you want.

I think the three areas I encounter it the most are in regards to the fields of genetic engineering, oncology and, the true masters of Dunning-Kruger, the anti-vaccine movement. It can be so frustrating. Especially when I see it in myself. ;)

I believe this explains a HUGE source of frustration for me working in the private sector. Some people are completely incompetent, but very confident in the process. They are rewarded for what appears to be successes even though they are most often riding the coattails of someone too modest to take the credit.

The situation is compounded by the idea that it is a violation of Human Resources policy to say or do anything that might hurt someone's feelings. I personally wish my boss would tell me when I'm being an idiot or doing something wrong, but instead he skirts around the issue and offers vague suggestions that do very little to help me improve.

I call it like I see it, even if it means calling you incompetent. I wish this was more acceptable in modern corporate culture.
