Psych

Here, go read about the Dunning-Kruger effect.

Here it is in short for the lazy:

The incompetent tend to overestimate their abilities and standing, while the competent tend to underestimate their abilities, but are pretty good at figuring out where they fit in.

I'm pretty sure this can be applied to poker, I'm just not sure how.

Oh, wait... it's blatently obvious. If it's not, you're not paying nearly enough attention at the tables.

Yeah! I KNEW I was underestimating my abilities. I'm gonna go play $400 NL poker right now!

Wait.


Does that make me the competent or incompetent?

Obviously, I'm "Non-Competent."

Since I tend to overestimate my abilities and standing but, I also did a good job at figuring out where I fit in.

Maybe Idiot would be a better descriptive? Yeah, probably!
