The Dunning-Kruger effect also known as Mount Stupid  or Smug Snake named after David Dunning and Justin Kruger of Cornell University, occurs where people fail to adequately assess their level of competence — or specifically, their in competence — at a task and thus consider themselves much more competent than everyone else.
This lack of awareness is attributed to their lower level of competence robbing them of the ability to critically analyse their performance, leading to a significant overestimation of themselves. In simple words it’s “people who are too ignorant to know how ignorant they are”.

The inverse also applies: The Dunning-Kruger effect is a slightly more specific case of the bias known as illusory superioritywhere people tend to overestimate their good points in comparison to others around them, while concurrently underestimating their negative points. The effect has been shown by experiment in several ways, but in this case Dunning and Kruger tested students on a series of criteria such as humourgrammar, and logic and compared the actual test results with each student’s own estimation of their performance.
Those who scored well on these tests were shown, consistently, to krugger their performance. This can be explained as a form of psychological projection: This is similar to the aforementioned “impostor syndrome” — found notably in graduate students and high-achieving women — whereby high achievers fail to recognize their talents as they think that others must be equally good.
Those who scored lowest on the test were found to have “grossly overestimated” their kruber, thus displaying what became known as the Dunning-Kruger effect. And what about the underachievers who overestimated their performance?
In the words of Dunning and Kruger:. This overestimation occurs, in part, because people who are unskilled in these domains suffer a dual burden: Not only do these people reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices, but their incompetence robs them of the metacognitive ability to realize it. The original study was focused specifically on competenceas opposed to intelligence — Dunning and Kruger were more concerned with the empiricalmeasurable factors of how well a person could perform a task even “simple” or “stupid” tasks and that person’s perception of how they performed that task, rather than the more nebulous concept of comparative ” intelligence ” or ” education.
The term is still properly meant to describe a disconnect between perceived and empirical competencerather than IQ or intelligence. Etkisk effect can also be summarised by the phrase “a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
For a potent example, consider former children ‘s TV presenter and “science advocate” Johnny Ball, who in krugrr audiences by denying the existence of climate change. His reasoning was based on the fact that water vapour as a greenhouse gas is much more prevalent, potent, and thus much more powerful than carbon dioxide — and because combustion reactions also produce water, it should be water vapour we’re worried about, not carbon dioxide.
Thus its concentration for given temperatures and pressures remains more or less constant globally.
Ball’s premise is also used by some critics against the hydrogen economy: An ill-informed and unsound argument — hydrogen fuel cell vehicles emit approximately the same amount of water per mile as vehicles using gasoline-powered internal combustion engines. Dunning and Kruger properly proved its existence in their seminal, Ig Nobel Prize winning  paper “Unskilled and Unaware of It,”  doubtless at great risk to personal sanity.
They were famously inspired by McArthur Wheeler, a Pittsburgh man who attempted to rob a bank while his face was covered in lemon juice. Wheeler had learned that lemon juice could be used as “invisible ink” that is, the old childhood experiment of making the juice appear when heated ; he therefore got the idea that unheated lemon juice would render his facial features unrecognizable or “invisible.
After he was effortlessly caught as he made no other attempts to conceal himself during the robberieshe was presented with video surveillance footage of him robbing the banks dunhing question, fully recognizable.

At this, he expressed apparently sincere surprise and lack of understanding as to why his plan did not work — he was not competent enough to see the logical gaps in his thinking dunninb plan.
The idea that people who don’t know that they don’t know “Dunning-Kruger effect” is so much less confusing than any “know-know” phrase isn’t particularly new. The Bertrand Russell quote is from the mid etkiwi, and even earlier, Charles Darwinin The Descent of Man instated “ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge. In his book Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat IdiotAl Franken described the phenomenon of ” pseudo-certainty ” which was rampantly being displayed by pundits and politicians such as Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrichwho would use ” common sense ” as the basis for their cocky assertions.
Franken prefers the term “being dunninng fucking moron. Tell me about your mother Psychology For our next session In this trifling particular, then, I appear to be wiser than he, because I do not fancy I know what I do not know.
