  • This sounds like the Dunning-Kruger effect in action [wikipedia.org]!

    Put very simply, a knowledgable person is aware of just how much they don't know, and will under-estimate their ability compared to others. An ignorant person, on the other hand, will tend to over-estimate their skills.

    The end result? Everyone rates themselves at 8/10.

    • Yup, exactly. I waved the D-K study at $boss during our discussion of this at work.
