The supreme confidence of utter incompetence


According to a study published in 2000 by Dr. David A. Dunning of Cornell University, “most incompetent people do not know that they are incompetent… On the contrary. People who do things badly, Dr. Dunning has found in studies conducted with a graduate student, Justin Kruger, are usually supremely confident of their abilities…” This is frighteningly accurate in many companies, not to mention the current White House.
