Dunning Kruger effect [View all]

Just watched a video on YouTube about this, Iíd never heard of it though Iíve observed the phenomena. Basically people at the very low end of intelligence or even other skills very often totally overestimate their abilities and think they are very smart. It takes some self awareness to begin to realize they arenít and people at the higher end tend to underestimate their abilities. Iíve certainly met people like this but Iíd say Trump is the poster child. He was so convinced he was being smart by releasing the transcript that showed his corruption so plainly and still canít figure out why others canít see that. I think the more he shoots his mouth the more he will damage himself. Aside from others like him and dedicated racists who will stick with him no matter what, there are some people who have stuck by him that are going to start seeing what a loser he is.
