the dunning-kruger effect

"He who knows best knows how little he knows." -- Thomas Jefferson.

The Dunning-Kruger Effect: Incompetent people systematically overestimate their abilities and believe that they know more than others who are far more competent.

The term is named after Justin Kruger and David Dunning whose Cornell University study was published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology (December 1999): "The Unskilled and Unaware of It: How Difficulties in Recognizing Ones Own Incompetence Lead to Inflated Self-Assessments." Their work follows from the research of others, such as W. I. Miller who observed that "it is one of the essential features of incompetence that the person so afflicted is incapable of knowing that he is incompetent" (1993).

To get started winning at an online casino the first thing that you need to do is find one that suits your needs. After all, if you do not have an internet casino that you can wager with, you will never be able to reach your goals in the end. In order to find a casino all you have to do is start your search online. This will allow you to find several options to choose from, and also research each one. In turn, you will never have any problems finding the one that will best match your needs.
[url=]online casino[/url] casino Free cash online casino bonus is very popular these days. The casino will offer you a certain amount of money to come play in their establishment. The amount can range from a hundred to several thousand dollars, depending on what kind of player that you are. The main thing to watch out for in this case is the limitations put on the online casino bonuses of this type. Make sure that you are getting the cash just for making a deposit and playing, not for playing a certain game or spending a large sum of money.

Keep in mind that since they are outside the country, you might have a hard time on keeping track of them if you ever you were cheated. Remember, distance is daunting if you do not have the means of getting your money back.
