Why incompetent people think they’re amazing

Wednesday Studio

From the creator:

TED-Ed commissioned us to make a video to accompany their lesson about "The Dunning Kruger effect" by Mr David Dunning. This effect is a cognitive phenomenon wherein people of low ability suffer from illusory superiority. The aim of this film is to help us to discover whether we are as good at things as we think we are.

With sound and music from the talented Tom Drew.

I will quite nicely disagree that any new media platform should advocate for a theory which presumes that wood pulp and sheepskins are still state of the art educational tools. I fundamentally disagree. Thank you.

Kinda figured. Has the data been Trump-normalized for income or educational background? Help me to help you; you are in desperate need.
