THE BASIC LAWS OF HUMAN STUPIDITY

Finally, a definitive study has explained the persistence of Stupidity as a human trait. Amazing. Entertaining. Frightening.

(probably the best thing Luke Wilson ever did.)

1) Always and inevitably everyone underestimates the number of stupid individuals in circulation.

2) The probability that a certain person be stupid is independent of any other characteristic of that person.

3) A stupid person is a person who causes losses to another person or to a group of persons while himself deriving no gain and even possibly incurring losses.

4) Non-stupid people always underestimate the damaging power of stupid individuals. In particular non-stupid people constantly forget that at all times and places and under any circumstances to deal and/or associate with stupid people always turns out to be a costly mistake.

5) A stupid person is the most dangerous type of person.

The Dunning Kruger syndrome or effect is characterized by the inability of some people to be aware of their incompetence or ineptitude.... Is a Cognitive distortion By which a person who actually has little ability to perform an activity, thinks that he has a lot. Even more than some experts. On the contrary people who are competent have a tendency to underestimate their abilities and abilities.
