Dunning–Kruger effect

The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.
— Bertrand Russell

Verified by Dunning and Kruger.

  1. What a wonderful quote. I meet the "cock sure" every day on our commercial programs and the doubtful on our defense programs.

    When there is not fatal outcome you can be cock sure know the project will be a success or proposed solution.

    In defense we only talk about the "probability of success."
