My nightmare is that the Dunning–Kruger effect has crept into my brain, and _I'm_ the one spouting absolute nonsense. Which brings up a meta-question: If you are aware of the Dunning–Kruger effect, are you largely inoculated to it?

I think Dunning-Kruger is brutally domain-specific. It doesn't seem to intrude much into my finances, but I seem to have to re-learn this reality each time I head to Home Depot to buy supplies for a "simple" home repair.
