  1. Add this to his Narcissism.

    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.[1] 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. Actual competence may weaken self-confidence, as competent individuals may falsely assume that others have an equivalent understanding. As Kruger and Dunning conclude, "the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others" (p. 1127).[2]

    The effect is about paradoxical defects in cognitive ability, in oneself and others.

    Great thread.

    In simpler language Obama doesn't know what he doesn't know.
  4. This would apply to Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmenn imo
  5. ha ha, post this in the main forum so more dumb shits realize they have little talent for other than arguing politics and religion. lol
  6. And neither of them will sniff the presidency. It's funny how these people try to criticize a man who has risen to become President of the United States. While these smart fellas are posting on a message board:D
  7. i also note that Obama did not come from a wealthy family. he apparently really made it on his own merits.

    if he is very dumb, he must be extremely lucky.
  8. Didn't even bother with that angle because we all know how Bush the Younger got in.

    Good point nonetheless.

    This is a problem which you could actually apply to most liberals. You see it is all a part of the liberal scam. They need to convince you that they are the smartest person in the room, because no person would willingly give up control of their life to someone else (the government) unless they believed the other person is smarter than them.

    Unfortunately when Liberals perpetuate this myth that they are some sort of special genius, certain liberals like Range Rover take it to heart, and actually believe that they are smarter than everyone else, simply because they vote for a democrat. So then you end up with some shit stain like Range Rover, who is marginally employed, still lives in his mom's basement, and didnt even graduate from high school thinking he is some kind of uber genius, and he actually has these brilliant ideas when infact he is just another idiot, and you can never get him to come to the conclusion under any circumstance that he might be wrong.
