Perhaps you’ve heard of the Dunning-Kruger effect? If not, here it is in a nutshell….
People who only know a little about something tend to overestimate their understanding of it, while experts tend to underestimate their own expertise.
That may seem strange at first glance, but when you stop and think, it makes sense. When you’ve only learned a little, you don’t know what you don’t know. The landscape is simple and pastel. You think you’ve got it.
But the more you learn, the more details you see, and the better you come to understand there’s a lot more detail that you can’t see.
