Dunning-Kruger effect.

 Have you all heard about the Dunning-Kruger effect? My ex-boyfriend and I were discussing this the other day. The definition (according to Wikipedia) is "the phenomenon wherein people who have little knowledge (or skill) tend to think they know more (or have more skill) than they do, while others who have much more knowledge tend to think that they know less."  It seems there are so many people, in the media especially who are just starting out that seem to be plagued by this. Meanwhile, the greatest, smartest, most prolific journalists in the world (and in NYC) are the first people to say how they want to/need to/constantly have to learn more. Strange how a little publicity can totally alter the perception of yourself if you let it. It's really so so sad.
