Re: this planet (Uncle Al)
1) Incompetents dramatically overestimate their ability and performance relative to objective criteria and competent peers.
2) Incompetents are unable to recognize competence when they see it - be it their own or others'.
3) Incompetents cannot use information from the performance of others to revise more accurate impressions of their own ability.
4) Incompetents may address their shortcomings by being rendered more competent, thus realizing that they perform poorly. By actively avoiding negative personal insight they more strongly embrace their dominant fantasies.
