    the dunning-kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which unskilled individuals suffer from illusory superiority (eg., inaccurately believing that they are superior to others or better at some skill/set of skills than they actually are), mistakenly rating their ability much higher than is accurate.

    this bias is attributed to a metacognitive inability of the unskilled to recognize their ineptitude.

    actual competence my actually weaken self-confidence, as competent individuals may falsely assume that all others have the same level of understanding or of the skill in question as they have.

    but people like schmoopy and ag are so retarded that they can't even recognize that everyone else is better than they are in all areas of life so they brag about how awesome they are, truly believing it, and not recognizing that everyone else is better.

    I have a few facebook friends who put their job titles in their screen names:

    Jenn Mochrie- Realtor

    Jeremy Smayles- DDS


    Are they colossal idiots as well ?

    one of my friends started online dating after his long time girlfriend dumped him. let's call him joe black. when he started online dating, he changed his email address to "dr_black@gmail.com." faggit wanted all the ladies to know he was a doctor but didn't want to sound like he was bragging by telling them. :jj:

    there is a doctor at the local hospital who drives a bright orange corvette.
    but that's not enough attention for the guy.
    oh no.
    his tag says 'HRT DOC'

    we have someone similar at our hospital but he drives an original military style hummer.

    and why do almost all dentists (dawgsaloon dentists, excluded, i would guess) drive cars with personalized plates with some stupid denistry related saying (e.g., "dr smles")?

    hmmm...according the the dunning-kruger research, my acknowledging that i'm terrible at sex probably means that i'm good at it. :cheer:

    I've never gotten the vibe that Schmoop thought he was "superior". I'm more inclined to believe shtick is his limited weapon if anything.

    You're reading way too much into it. Schmoop is just a socially awkward retard.
