korien_sept24Dunning and Kruger did experiments showing that people with a little skill at something have more confidence in their ability than people with more skill. This is because as you learn more about something, you become more aware of the ways in which you could be better at it. Have you been trying to learn a new skill (like speaking English!) but feel like you aren’t making enough progress? You are better than you think! You just understand your faults better as you learn more about the skill.
