Dunning Krueger Effect is an excellent example of bullshit science and people accepting things that sound right instead of rigorously checking.

So using the Dunning-Krueger effect to prove how smart you are is an example of the Dunning-Krueger effect?

Well it depends on how you’re using it.

On the surface, if I understand what you’re asking correctly, no. From what I’m understanding of these articles, the dunning Krueger effect never did what it set out to accomplish, but something along the lines of people who don’t know much have a much larger amount of things that they themselves aren’t even aware of not knowing… if that makes sense? I can try to reword later tonight after I finish with work
