Polack Pirate: You just gave me this Sunday’s Topic of Discussion at our dinner table! Bloody Brilliant link, THANK YOU!!!

“Although the Dunning–Kruger effect was put forward in 1999, Dunning and Kruger quoted Charles Darwin (“Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge”) and Bertrand Russell (“One of the painful things about our time is that those who feel certainty are stupid, and those with any imagination and understanding are filled with doubt and indecision”)as authors who have recognised the phenomenon. Geraint Fuller, commenting on the paper, notes that Shakespeare expresses similar sentiment in As You Like It  (“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.”

I think this sums up 75% of the inquiring topics on this site. “Help Me, Obi Wan Off Gridder! I have no experience and no money but need your help!” (LOL)
