Mr or Ms Know-it-all


How knowledgeable are you in your field of expertise?

What about your understanding in areas outside that sphere?

“Concepts were invented by researchers at Cornell University seeking to understand why people say they know things when they don’t—what the team refers to as ‘overclaiming.’ The resulting study, published in the journal Psychological Science, indicates that the more people see themselves as experts, the more likely they are to feign knowledge of phony information.”

Hmmm, would that be the “Fake it till you make it” idea?
