The Easiest Person to Fool



I’m sure you’ve seen it inside your station.

It’s pretty easy to spot in others, harder to admit about ourselves.

We hear about it most often in areas like finance and investment, and lately in politics.

It’s been proven scientifically (if you believe in science, which is not a slam dunk in America today) and even has a name, the Dunning-Kruger Effect:

People who are incompetent and lack knowledge in a field tend to massively overestimate their abilities because, quite simply, they don’t know enough to recognize what they don’t know. So hugely unqualified people erroneously believe that they’re perfectly qualified.”

So, the easiest person to fool is….you.
