Lost in the swamp between Dunning-Kruger and Imposter Syndrome


I suspect it’s the human condition to be spinning like a top between the two. So here’s a bad song about one side of the problem.

You might think it’s great. It’s not.

    Hey, I liked the chorus.

    Who is that idiot anyway?

    Oh, I’d also say the song is not really describing the the DK Effect all that accurately but someone shouting (singing?) on a podium may not be a good way to present the theory.

    Nuances and notes may not mix.

    For those who aren’t familiar, the Ignobels are given out at Harvard every year and the presentation includes an opera written specifically for the event. Paper airplanes also play a major role in the ceremony.

    #6, Nemo:

    The captions are accurate; it’s the singing that was way off.

    I know this because I am an exceptional Opera Analysis.
