Ever Valid Gap
My thoughts today circled around gaps. Why would we demand less gaps/ instant buttons, when we always have our own to elaborate along our lifetime? We can relate to any occupation. Here is a great review of a post from John Skeats
“Why People Who Know the Least About a Subject Seem to Have the Most to Say
I have always been fascinated by the Dunning-Kruger Effect but never saw it presented graphically before. Dunning and Kruger, are professors of psychology at Cornell University, investigated the age-old question of why people who know the least about something often seem have the most to say about it.
Their first conclusion was that people who know the least do, in fact, tend to have the most to say. The reason for that, they concluded, was that people with very little knowledge of a subject tend to have far greater confidence that they understand the subject than even experts in the field.
Taking it a step further, Dunning and Kruger concluded that the false sense of confidence came from the fact that the people understood so little about the subject that they didn’t understand the limits of their knowledge. The more people learn about virtually anything, the more they discover there is to learn. As a result, even the top experts in the world in fields tend to have less confidence in the completeness of their understanding than people who know very little about the subjects”
