Incompetent People Clueless

Incompetent People Really Have No Clue:
"People who do things badly, Dunning has found in studies conducted with a graduate student, Justin Kruger, are usually supremely confident of their abilities -- more confident, in fact, than people who do things well.

One reason that the ignorant also tend to be the blissfully self-assured, the researchers believe, is that the skills required for competence often are the same skills necessary to recognize competence.

The incompetent, therefore, suffer doubly"
I know someone like this. Incompetent to the core, but thinks she is spectacular. And we all suffer for it.
