What Incompetent People Don’t Know
Anyone who has ever held a job will relate to this bit of information………
Why don’t incompetent people know they are incompetent ???? We all know they are messing up ; we watch them screw up regularly. Here’s the answer (if you send them this post, please leave me out of it).
The Dunning- Kruger Effect explains this phenomenon. In four different studies, researchers found that certain people remained unaware of their incompetence. Why? Here you go……..
1. They fail to learn from their mistakes
2. They lack the skill to do their task
3. They lack the ability to recognize their performance as sub-par
Now, does this make me feel better or worse; I don’t know.
