I heard a lot of theories, methodologies, syndrome. I forced myself to understand some, I kept repeating myself in order to keep some of them in mind, and some of them went away instantly. Right, philosophers, scientists, "they never stopped empty, they produced for us, stopped."
There is only one, so quickly I have relieved, and since the day I first read about it, I have never been able to get my mind off. Why? Because the human brain does not forget to reinforce something, it always keeps that knowledge fresh. If it is not used very often, it is pushed to the back to make more room for the used information, and it becomes harder to memorize over time, even in the long run. It's one of the great features of the human brain. Dunning Kruger Syndrome maintains its fresh appearance in my brain because of the restorative examples I have seen on a continuous basis.
What is this DUNNING-KRUGER Syndrome?
He takes the name in the name of those who put it like the name of many inventions and inventions. Cornell University's two psychiatrists, Justin Kruger and David Dunning, were introduced in 1999 and received the Nobel Prize in psychology in 2000.
The essence of the Syndrome explains: "The fewer people know about a topic, the less information about it actually prevents them from realizing how little information they have and gives them the confidence to know everything." Those who think you are taking an active role in the projects, that you have very little knowledge, equipment and capacity around you, those who you think you are taking an effective role in the projects ... Those people you call "self-marketing very well" ... Dunning Kruger Syndrome ?
In fact, we all have a little bit of it. If we have little knowledge in one subject, the nature of the work is supposed to be this knowledge, and we have tremendous confidence in ourselves. But when we do more research on the subject, we see how little our knowledge is when we see the details of the job. Hani has recently graduated from college, we have recently emerged from childhood, adolescence, life is very well known to claim that we know and we are pissed on my family ... Even in our country many people know everything and this is exactly what everyone knows.
Yes, we have this syndrome now, but people are divided into two; Who excel at the perfectionist personality who loves to dig into the research in detail and who are content with little information. As a person who knows little, he tends to trust himself. And these people create such an aura with the high energy of their self-confidence that they can also affect people around them. Those who are not satisfied with the information, as Socrates puts it, take the logic that "the only thing I know is that I know nothing". By seeing the missing aspects of them, they can not be as self-confident as the other profile and try to cook at lower positions. The result is that the missing hardware, like the theory of "BAD MONEY GOOD PARAY COVERS" in the economy, fires more equipment.
If this is the effect of the projects; Involvement of project managers and project team members with lower qualifications in the projects and adversely affecting the success of the projects. I think you guys have witnessed the Dunning Kruger syndrome at least once, as a result of the project's failure. I have witnessed so many projects on counseling that I will share my work with PMI and request that Dunning Kruger Syndrome be added to the literature as a result of project failure (!). This situation has a negative effect on project managers' reputation. I think Dunning Kruger is the case for the project managers, which leads to a "look at the person who does nothing but nose into every job".
