Abstract

The Dunning–Kruger effect describes a tendency for incompetent individuals to overestimate their ability. The effect has both seeped into popular imagination and been the subject of scientific critique. Jansen et al. combine computational modelling with a large-scale replication of the original findings to shed new light on the drivers of the Dunning–Kruger effect.
