About the content

Though the concept of illusory superiority arguably dates back to Confucius and Socrates, it may come as a shock that its discussion labelled under the Dunning-Kruger Effect is almost 20 years old; and though it may simply be a result of an echo chamber created through my own social media, it seems to be popping up quite frequently in the news and posts that I’ve been reading lately - even through memes! For those of you unfamiliar with the phenomenon, the Dunning-Kruger Effect refers to a cognitive bias in which individuals with a low level of knowledge in a particular subject mistakenly assess their knowledge or ability as greater than it is. Similarly, it also refers to experts underestimating their own level of knowledge or ability.
