The world awaits. Sunday morning. Sundays, can for some, be a day where possibilities get forcasted and planned out. Drink your morning coffee and think through what you will do this day of supposed rest before the hustle starts back up again. What a rosy picture. And, again, it can be true.
But then the coffee kicks in and your eyes become sharper and your brain more alert. You start thinking of all the obligations versus dreamy possibilities. Then for some reason you put on the television to catch a few minutes of the news in this upside world.
You, perhaps without knowing it, come to bang your head because of what seems to be a worldwide-case of the Dunning-Kruger effect.
Yes. In psychology, the Dunning-Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which people with limited knowledge or competence in a given area greatly overestimate their own knowledge in that subject. Tell me that is not what you are faced with on your Sunday morning contemplations? I suppose I can go do far as to presume that it’s not only Sunday for which we are faced with this effect at- large.
There’s nothing really one can do. Grin and bear it? Try to counter with actual knowledge and facts. Be amused and bemused. Join in for fun with your own wacky, self-assured facts. I suppose it’s all in how you approach and frame the world.
