From my good friend Tom’s blog. He’s was part of the inspiration to start the Tactical Arnis blog so when I find really great content that he’s taken the time to make… why reinvent the wheel?
This is a simple but tough question based on the Dunning-Kruger effect:
His blog is on my links and blogroll, check it out. His Tactical PreSchool series is great too.
“Something interesting to think about is the “Dunning-Kruger” effect.
The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which unskilled people make poor decisions and reach erroneous conclusions, but their incompetence denies them the metacognitive ability to appreciate their mistakes. The unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their ability as above average, much higher than it actually is, while the highly skilled underrate their own abilities, suffering from illusory inferiority.
In other words, some of the people who like to yap about how good they are are not as good as they may think, while some who say “ahhh Im not as good at it as I would like to be” may in fact be more skilled than the loudmouths.”
