Switzerland 2015 - Like Leto - Diary
Click here to witness Dunning-Kruger in full effect…
There's a psychological disorder known as the Dunning-Kruger Effect, whereby unskilled individuals suffer from a kind of illusiary superiority, believing their abilities to be much higher than they actually are. It's believed that this is down to a little switch in the brain that has made them unable to recognise their gross ineptitude.
You will have seen this condition manifest itself in the early stages all manner of TV casting shows. Said hapless contestant gets up in front of the judges, confidently boasts that they're going to rip the show apart and end up bigger than Jesus, before honking out a dog-bothering mess of half remembered lines - usually accompanied by a disjointed, shuffling dance routine.
Psychologists have written many papers about it, and the depth of the condition seems to be of equal severity across the globe.
Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce you to Like Leto.
