"People who do things badly...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." - New York Times (January 18, 2000)
