The Dunning-Kruger effect

The Dunning-Kruger effect - Science Show - 8 May 2010:
"The dumb get confident, while the intelligent get doubtful. That's the conclusion that David Dunning and Justin Kruger came to when studying people's perceptions of their own talents. What has now become known as the Dunning-Kruger effect helps describe why lay people often act as experts and inept pollies get our votes."
I think Socrates was studying this already a while ago.
