The Dunning-Kruger Effect

I mentioned the Dunning-Kruger effect in my last post. When you’re starting out in business you may be overwhelmed by the confidence of others, especially when it’s not really deserved. The Dunning-Kruger effect explains why so many often overestimate their abilities.

This same phenomenon can have an inverse effect leading to imposter syndrome. The more you know, the more you realize you don’t know. That’s a good thing.
