Whereas People with tons of clues figure the clues were so obvious they feel stupid for not getting them sooner and everybody else probably had them all along.
I assume everybody has a touch of this bias about at least one thing in their lives.
With that out of the way, I will now explain why I love the Dunning-Kruger Effect:
1. Because I thought I was crazy.
Now I know that I am not crazy; I am just either so crazy smart I think comparatively hard things are easy and obvious, or else I am so crazy stupid that I can't understand what the smart people are doing. Either way, at least I am not crazy.
2. Because it makes life a little more surreal.
How can you ever be sure whether you are an idiot or a genius (or just a regular Schmo)?
I notice this one especially with writing, because I objectively think my writing is pretty good, but I notice that everybody seems to think their writing is pretty good even when it is demonstrably NOT, which makes me think I could actually be a REALLY TERRIBLE WRITER and secretly everybody knows it except me and is very uncomfortable and not wanting to hurt my feelings, and pretty soon, it's like...Woah, the clocks are all melting, man.
3. Because you know what's so f-ing cool about being wrong?
When somebody explains to you what you got wrong, YOU'RE SUDDENLY RIGHT AGAIN! How cool is that? It's like it's literally IMPOSSIBLE TO BE WRONG! Well, you can be wrong if everybody else is wrong, too, but in that case, everybody will still THINK you are right, so it doesn't matter.
So let go of the Dunning-Kruger Angst (recently recognized by the DSM). This is GOOD news. Now when you can't figure out why you are the only person who doesn't get what's going on, you can remind yourself it might be just that you are the only person who does. But you might want to check your facts, just in case.
