Oh also you can be trained in certain classes in college for example to bullshit with confidence. English teachers want you to write as though you know what you're talking about, and I'm sure this goes to much deeper depths with people who say, go to law school, for example.
In these cases, though, we know we're doing it so that people will pay attention. At least I do.

This would really explain those people who try out for America's Got Talent and American Idol who are absolutely horrible, and equally convinced that they are amazing.

Some people are convinced by others of their greatness. I think many American Idol hopefuls may have been unintentionally duped in this manner, perhaps by friends and relatives who are just trying to help."But you forget that there is one value that is greater than all others: human freedom. Because no matter how perfectly you set the world up for humanity, they will always rebel simply to exert their own selves. You cannot win."

"Intelligence on a certain topic" is roughly equivalent to "one's running speed with rocket shoes attached".
As a hint, running speed isn't measured like that. Nor is one's intelligence.

four stages of competence. Illusory superiority correlates with the first stage- unconsciously incompetent. Underestimating your competence sounds like it corresponds to the fourth stage- unconsciously competent. You just perform the skill without thinking much about it, taking it for granted, perhaps not realizing how good you really are.INtp
