Incompetent People Really Have
No Clue,Studies Find

San Francisco Examiner, by Erica Goode

Original Article

Posted By:MattMusson, 1/23/2013 3:18:32 PM

There are many incompetent people in the world. Dr. David A. Dunning is haunted by the fear that he might be one of them. Dunning, a professor of psychology at Cornell, worries about this because, according to his research, most incompetent people do not know that they are incompetent. On the contrary. People who do things badly, Dunning has found in studies conducted with a graduate student, Justin Kruger, are usually supremely confident of their abilities -- more confident, in fact, than people who do things well. "I began to think that there were probably lots of things that I was bad at, and I didn't know it," Dunning said.

This explains where Obama´s confidence comes from. Incompetent people are more confident of themselves, than are people who are capable.

It has been so hard to impress on my children that they are actually smarter than average. Like this study says, they continue to think that everyone thinks like they do and therefore they aren´t all that smart. It hindered my son who was so convinced that he was nothing special and why should anyone hire him? Now he is getting the extra hours that others aren´t getting and he has been chosen to get the promotion and into a more responsible job. I hope he stops selling himself short. Oh and I should note that we instilled the work ethic in our kids and they actually do the job and turn up on time too.

So if I´m stupid, I´ll think I´m smart? And if I´m smart, I´ll think I´m stupid? Sorry. Egos don´t work that way at any IQ level.

There is a serious moral and ethical dimension to this. Remember the 7 Deadly Sins and their opposite virtues? Think about Pride vs Humility. Chesterton, in one of his Father Brown stories, wrote about the "arrogance of guessing".

The MSDNC hatemongers wallow in the unspoken pretense that they have some psychic power to see into the hearts of others and pompously declare them to be racist, uncaring, haters-of-true-science, etc.

Obama is certainly an example of this. But Michelle is an even better example. The woman is a dolt. But she´s been told all her life she´s something special, just because of the color of her skin. In fact, suspect that affirmative action really magnifies the phenomenon discussed in the article for just that reason.

They all feel they are entitled to "good paying high quality jobs" but possess no skills and are not willing to study and work for them.

They all think they are sooo smart...but hey...keep sending them those government checks which come from my taxes.

It´s obvious that incompetent people don´t think they´re incompetent. Lack of self-awareness is one of their main areas of incompetence.

If it weren´t for those achievers who were smart enough to know they didn´t know everything, we wouldn´t have the advanced technological society we have today.

Realizing you have a long way to go is a huge motivating factor in getting there. I´ve yet to meet a really talented, truly intelligent person who doesn´t think they can improve.

These findinggs can be carried into the roots of the "god complex" that doctors and professors occupy.
A poor performer amongst many others is not visible.

After earning a couple of engineering degrees, I had a pretty decent handle on how much there is in the world that I DIDN´T know. Also, I figured that while I was probably smarter than average, I was far from the smartest guy around. Helps keep you humble and working to improve. I have frequently quoted that great American philosopher, Harry Callahan - " A man has got to know his limitations."

D´rats ALWAYS get it wrong but never seem to be bothered that ALL their policies fail and usually produce the opposite of the results that they claim to have intended.

I guess it comes down to "Idiots are too stupid to even know that they are idiots."

I suppose what is measured as being competent should matter - life outcomes - like divorces etc.

That said, I doubt that the typical left-winger could survive in the private sector -beyond working as book-store clerks or baristas. The famous ones - a Kennedy - sure they survive - insulated by cash and connections. I recall that George McGovern - after his defeat in 1972 bought a B and B in New England - only to find out how difficult the private sector really was. I do not think that he thrived.

Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) employees aren´t necessarily better at investing in stocks than everyone else, but they are much better at getting out of bad investments before the "bad news" hits. That´s according to a new paper by Shivaram Rajgopal and Roger M. White, called, "Stock Picking Skills of SEC Employees."
"The decomposition of returns earned by SEC employees suggests that the abnormal returns are earned in the sell portfolio. In particular, the 12 month ahead (252 trading days) abnormal returns, using the four factor Fama-French model as the model of expected returns, of U.S. common stocks that SEC employees buy (sell) is 0.56% (-7.97%)

Vermont plots course for

WASHINGTON – While all eyes are on the ObamaCare rollout, an ambitious health care experiment is going forward in Vermont that would create a government-run alternative know as a "single-payer" system -- and it´s starting to attract more attention from liberals frustrated with the Affordable Care Act´s implementation. Democrats´ faith in ObamaCare has been shaken by the technical failures of the federal and state insurance exchanges as well as, in some cases, premium increases. In Vermont, however, they see a potential first step toward the kind of national government-run health care system some have advocated for years.

Overshadowed by the bungled debut of Obamacare and congressional gridlock, most Americans in a new poll dubbed 2013 a bad year that will be quickly forgotten. For more than four-in-10, the perils of 2013 hit home hard.“Put simply, most Americans are happy to see 2013 go,” said the latest Economist/YouGov Poll.— 54 percent called 2013 a “bad year” for the world. Another 15 percent called it a “very bad year,” with just 3 percent calling it a “very good year” and 29 percent a “good year.”— Only 13 percent of Republicans say 2013 has been a good year for the world. Obamacare is a failure. “There are almost no issues where a majority of Americans have seen improvement.

BEIJING — China on Saturday successfully carried out the world’s first soft landing of a space probe on the moon in nearly four decades, state media said, the next stage in an ambitious space program that aims to eventually put a Chinese astronaut on the moon. The unmanned Chang'e 3 lander, named after a mythical Chinese goddess of the moon, touched down on Earth’s nearest neighbor following a 12-minute landing process. The probe carried a six-wheeled moon rover called ‘‘Yutu,’’ or ‘‘Jade Rabbit,’’ the goddess’ pet. After landing Saturday evening on a fairly flat, Earth-facing part of the moon, the rover was slated to separate from the Chang'e eight hours later and embark on a three-month scientific exploration.

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
