Run laps a lot
Pee on the garden
Leap over fences
Cock is a word for rooster
Hen is a type of chicken?
Kit kats are good
Nice chickens don't belong in the

Also, the Dunning-Kruger effect is much broader than just that study. In general, most people tend to evaluate themselves as more skilled than they actually are, even when they're very accurate when assessing others' skill levels. We're all hypocrites in this regard, necessarily blind to our weaknesses. So in general it's a bit of a cheap shot to bring up D-K in the first place, as we all tend to succumb to it from time to time.

Yeah I posted that initially half sardonically-remembering that it was 'human nature'-something psychology related- for people to have a tendency to overestimate their own abilities-in EVERYTHING, but that the study that I had read focused particularly on intelligence-
Anyways, oh yeah. Absolutely a natural phenomenon. But I mean, I am not sure that I would limit it just to the self. I mean, I have not read any studies-or if I have-well I couldnt reference or use them or anything- but I would think that anyone that a person sees as-well holds considerable investment-projected possibly from the self sure-would be well, inclined to be seen under the same light. If only in the trait that person sees as important. But unsure. Just throwing that out there.

It goes further beyond the forums though. A group I am part of has an internal chat program to work remotely, and we have side channels for just chitchat, one of them being for current events. We've recently been discussing that nearly all of us grew up in an "intellect bubble" by growing up in towns and areas where pretty much everyone is well educated and acheivement striving. Few are genuinely "dumb". As such when statistics are discovered, such as the literacy rate our reaction is "wait what? That can't POSSIBLY be true! There is no way that many people are that dumb". Stats are stats though.
It's... really, really disenharting. I want to live in my "everyone has good intentions and is smart" bubble damnit!
