    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    Actively attempting to choose to put stock in the positive possibility-that I am not worthless.

    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.
    I know you weren't responding to me, but I was more insinuating that there are a lot of arrogant snobs on this website who think they are better than everyone else.

    I'm depressed that I'm even visiting this site and posting. I must have a problem.

    Anyway, I just wanted to add that the Dunning-Kruger research is not about over estimating yourself, at least to not completely, its about under estimating yourself too.

    The point of the research was that many of those who had achieved or accomplished things had done so because they over estimated their own ability and were surrounded by capable and able subordinate or collegiate individuals who underestimated their ability. One group was making a mistake about their self, the other was making a mistake about others. Both of those observations carry equal weight and importance.

    In fact I'd argue, and some of the applications of the actual research and its implications bare this out, the US navy took a lot of interest in it to try and arrest a sort of organisational entropy, that a group of capable individuals believe others are more capable purely as a consequence of their rank, status or self-belief/arrogance is much, much more significant.

    I hate seeing Dunning-Kruger enlisted among anyone getting a rant on about everyone or someone over estimating themselves because it displays a lack of insight into what the theory really entails, though it wouldnt be the only theory in that respect, and I probably should give less of a shit about all those thinking fails anyway.
