    The Duning-Kruger effect represents a cognitive bias in people who are doubly incompetent – sure of themselves even when they are wrong and unable to recognize their own cluelessness.  This may be due to selective exposure to facts that support their pre-conceived notions while disregarding contrary information.  - https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/ma … -so-stupid

    1. Stupid people blame others for their own mistakes
    2. Stupid people always have to be right
    3. Stupid people react to conflicts with anger and aggression
    4. Stupid people ignore the needs and feelings of other people
    5. Stupid people think they are better than everyone else

    Perhaps our most dangerous bias is that we naturally assume that everyone else is more susceptible to thinking errors, a tendency known as the “bias blind spot.” This “meta-bias” is rooted in our ability to spot systematic mistakes in the decisions of others—we excel at noticing the flaws of friends—and inability to spot those same mistakes in ourselves. - https://www.newyorker.com/tech/frontal- … are-stupid

    Not looking for an I.Q. test which means nothing.
    An Emotional I.Q. test wouldn't quite fit the bill.
    If I was a Zombie - would I realize that I am one?
    I could be an Alexa bot for all I know.

    Maybe the Dunning–Kruger effect is just a real diplomatic way of saying ArseWhole?
    The following test is for those at work to see if you are the arse at work.

    What I'm looking for is an online free test to see if one is self aware of one's low intelligence.

    Intrapersonal, (self smart) is the ability to be alone, solitary, by yourself without being afraid or bored. Intrapersonal learners prefer to work alone.

      Are you confusing intelligence with knowledge?  Or setting up to "prove" that all conservatives are stupid because they don't agree with you?

        intelligence with knowledge? 

        I don't think so,  problem solving vs book smart maybe

          Reason I ask - the last picture mentions "book smart", "body smart", "picture smart".  Which I interpret to mean "learned or educated", "healthy" or perhaps "athletic" and "beautiful" or "photogenic".  Which are all similar to "knowledge" but have nothing to do with "intelligence".

          And after that my quote key is broken. sad

            Body smart
            Some people may thinkg that is means being beautiful.
            I took it to mean being able to do a triple lutz on skates on a very slippery surface of ice for example

              So did I, although I went for winning the 100 yard dash or pole vaulting.  Knowledge, in other words, as opposed to intelligence.

    What is an example of intrapersonal skills?

    - Knowing what drives, angers, motivates, frustrates, inspires you.
    - Ability to control unexpected emotions like anger and frustration.
    - Knowing your own strengths and limitations.
    - Self confidence.
    - Initiative.
    - Taking measured risks.
    - Taking responsibility.
    - The ability to stay calm and balanced in stressful situations.

    How do you know if you suffer from Dunning-Kruger? By seeing if those who lack skill fail to recognize it in others.

    If you’ve been responsible for a direct hire, how did that person turn out? If you’ve recommended people for jobs, how have they performed? Perhaps the only way to recognize if you are a Dunning-Kruger sufferer is to use this test to see whether you can identify true skill in others. - https://ralphbarbagallo.com/2013/05/01/ … ng-kruger/

    But those afflicted by it - medical students, chess players - were hardly unintelligent. "People are destined not to know where the solid land of their knowledge ends and the slippery shores of their ignorance begins," writes Dunning. He calls this affliction the "anosognosia of everyday life". http://www.gq-magazine.co.uk/article/st … or-dummies

    Don't take Dunning and Kruger too seriously, it was awarded the 2000 satirical Ig Nobel Prize in Psychology. Note that is the Ig Nobel Prize, not the Nobel Prize.

    Risk Intelligence is the ability to estimate probabilities accurately. People with high risk intelligence tend to make better predictions than those with low RQ.
    I scored 64.96 out of 100 (average) basic RQ

    Well I don't gamble and when was in Sparks NV to cash my paycheck, go get a free $2 roll, 2 free drinks play Jacks or Better and then go home.

      Now that's unfair!  I had to pay for my roll of nickels! - the price of entertainment, and pretty cheap for an hour or two of free drinks while watching crazy people feed the slots.

      Beat you though - my RQ score was 71.91.

    I want to learn how to forecast better.
    "Bayes' rule or Bayes' theorem is the law of probability governing the strength of evidence - the rule saying how much to revise our probabilities (change our minds) when we learn a new fact or observe new evidence." - https://arbital.com/p/bayes_rule/?l=1zq

    I do not want to be an investor -that to me is utterly boring.
    I want to know future trends.
    I want to be able to comprehend the difference  - if any - between the Deep State vs the Shadow Government.

    Shadow government refers to markets for public services that are controlled by a small number of large, predominantly private companies that have great influence in how these markets work.
