Dunning-Kruger Effect

Nadagit ka na ba ng trick question na...

"What Grade Do You Think You Deserve?"

o kaya

"What Salary Do You Think You Deserve?"


Me? A LOT... I tend to grade myself much lower than I should...

Humble lang po (-.-)

Oh Well, I dont need High Grades
(Hala lagot ako, oo nga pla... Kelangan ko pala magkaron ng Scholarship (-.-) )

Most people give themselves a much lower value when asked to grade themselves.

Some naman, they give themselves a high grade even though they don't deserve it.

Hinahanap ko kung anong tawag sa phenomenon na yun e

Pero ayon sa aking research... Yun yung tinatawag na:

Dunning-Kruger Effect (Well eto yung closest e)

To put this in simplier term, I'll quote a smart person:

"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."
-Bertrand Russell

Kung complicated pa yan eto...

Yung DK effect e pwedeng

1) Feeling matalino hindi naman + confident na matalino sya.
2) Matalino kaso nagdududa na matalino sya + hindi confident na matalino sya.

Experienced this before? :)

Or know some people who are like no. 1 and 2 ? :)

It can be seen everyday :)

Just observe :)
