    The Dunning-Kruger effect is a type of cognitive bias in which people believe that they are smarter and more capable than they really are. Essentially, low ability people do not possess the skills needed to recognize their own incompetence. The combination of poor self-awareness and low cognitive ability leads them to overestimate their own capabilities.

    The term lends a scientific name and explanation to a problem that many people immediately recognize—that fools are blind to their own foolishness. As Charles Darwin wrote in his book The Descent of Man, "Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge."

    I just had a human factors training and they talked about Dunning-Kruger effect. They explained how it can have an effect on safety, and as discussed in the article once you gain enough experience you realize that you are susceptible to error. It also went in to the Expert’s Curse, which was another interesting cause for safety concerns.

    After reading about Dunning-Kruger I realized it fit her to a tee.

    A Little Knowledge Can Lead to Overconfidence

    Another contributing factor is that sometimes a tiny bit of knowledge on a subject can lead people to mistakenly believe that they know all there is to know about it. As the old saying goes, a little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing. A person might have the slimmest bit of awareness about a subject, yet thanks to the Dunning-Kruger effect, believe that he or she is an expert.

    All I was saying is that we don't know what it would take to make more than most everyone here - we can only guess.

    But you didn't say that.

    Normally, I don't point out your stupidity.. I just let it go because it's rather tame compared to our top 5 contenders.. but this was so monumentally stupid it needed to be made fun of.

    Stop being so monumentally stupid.

    I'll be the odd one out and say I thought he just meant people who are doing well financially don't tell everyone else how rich they are over and over again like Time4Pegging.

    Ah.. I took it a different way. Even when he "clarified" it, he didn't.
