People tend to hold overly favorable views of their abilities in many social and intellectual domains. The authors suggest that this overestimation occurs, in part, because people who are unskilled in these domains suffer a dual burden: Not only do these people reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices, but their incompetence robs them of the metacognitive ability to realize it.

The Dunning—Kruger effect is a hypothetical cognitive bias stating that people with low ability at a task overestimate their ability. As described by social psychologists David Dunning and Justin Kruger , the bias results from an internal illusion in people of low ability and from an external misperception in people of high ability; that is, "the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others". Without the self-awareness of metacognition , people cannot objectively evaluate their level of competence. Colloquially, people experiencing this bias are said to be "on Mount Stupid". The hypothesis has been claimed to align with many people's just world theory.

Garrison Keillor , Lake Wobegon monologues, passim. My paper this time comes from the June edition of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. Here is a link to the original article KB pdf. Those who are rubbish at grammar lack the necessary metacognitive skill to identify their own shortcomings. If lack of skill and lack of metacognitive skill go together in many areas of human endeavour, it might provide a partial explanation for the Lake Wobegon Effect.
Dunning-Kruger effect , in psychology , a cognitive bias whereby people with limited knowledge or competence in a given intellectual or social domain greatly overestimate their own knowledge or competence in that domain relative to objective criteria or to the performance of their peers or of people in general. Dunning and Kruger emphasized that the effect they had identified does not imply that people always overestimate their own knowledge or competence. Nor does the effect imply that motivational biases and other factors do not also play a role in producing inflated self-assessments among incompetent people. Later investigations of the Dunning-Kruger effect explored its influence in a variety of other domains, including business, medicine, and politics. For example, a study published in indicated that Americans who know relatively little about politics and government are more likely than other Americans to overestimate their knowledge of those topics.
People are typically overly optimistic when evaluating the quality of their performance on social and intellectual tasks. In particular, poor performers grossly overestimate their performances because their incompetence deprives them of the skills needed to recognize their deficits. Five studies demonstrated that poor performers lack insight into their shortcomings even in real world settings and when given incentives to be accurate.
We contend that the unskilled are motivated to ignore be unaware of their poor performance so that they can feel better about themselves. We tested this idea in an experiment in which we manipulated the perceived self-relevancy of the task to men and women after they had completed a visual pun task and before they estimated their performance on the task. As predicted, the unskilled and unaware effect was attenuated when the task was perceived to have low self-relevance.
People tend to hold overly favorable views of their abilities in many social and intellectual domains. The authors suggest that this overestimation occurs, in part, because people who are unskilled in these domains suffer a dual burden: Not only do these people reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices, but their incompetence robs them of the metacognitive ability to realize it. Across 4 studies, the authors found that participants scoring in the bottom quartile on tests of humor, grammar, and logic grossly overestimated their test performance and ability. Although their test scores put them in the 12th percentile, they estimated themselves to be in the 62nd. Several analyses linked this miscalibration to deficits in metacognitive skill, or the capacity to distinguish accuracy from error.

Это не так важно, - горделиво заявил Клушар. - Мою колонку перепечатывают в Соединенных Штатах, у меня отличный английский. - Мне говорили, - улыбнулся Беккер. Он присел на край койки. - Теперь, мистер Клушар, позвольте спросить, почему такой человек, как вы, оказался в таком месте. В Севилье есть больницы получше.
Формула, утверждают они, - это мистификация, к которой не следует относиться серьезно. - Аукцион? - Сьюзан подняла. Стратмор кивнул: - Как раз сейчас японские компании скачивают зашифрованную версию Цифровой крепости и пытаются ее взломать. С каждой минутой, уходящей на эти бесплодные попытки, ее цена растет. - Но это же абсурд, - не согласилась Сьюзан.
У нас нет времени, чтобы… - Никакая служба здесь не появится, Сьюзан. У нас столько времени, сколько. Сьюзан отказывалась понимать. Не появится. - Но вы же позвонили… Стратмор позволил себе наконец засмеяться. - Трюк, старый как мир.
