We’ve discussed the Dunning–Kruger effect on the show before: the psychological phenomenon in which people who are not good at something tend to think they’re better at it than they really are. So the less you know, the more you think you know.
But this cognitive bias can only exists in relation our misguided assumptions about reality – namely, our assumption that we know how reality works and will continue to work. And at this point where our assumptions and biases meet, it creates delusion.
When we start chipping away at this delusion – and in the process, start chipping away at our resistance to change – we can actually find a lot of power in the act of not knowing, and today I want you to embrace that power.
I’d love your feedback. Click here to leave a rating & review for the show on iTunes.
