Colloquium Series: Professor David Dunning, Sept. 15, 2017

Prof. David Dunning

Department of Psychology

University of Michigan

“We Are All Flawed Intellects: So How Can We Judge the Expertise of Self and Others?”

In his talk Dr. Dunning will discuss the “Flawed Evaluator Problem,” the fact that people have gaps and glitches in their expertise. He will discuss how these imperfections lead people to misjudge themselves, often causing them to miss their intellectual shortcomings (the so-called Dunning-Kruger effect), and misjudge others, often prompting failures to recognize their genius (the Cassandra Quandary). He’ll discuss the implications for personal as well as societal development.
