"In the field of psychology, the Dunning-Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in w/c people with low ability at a task overestimate their ability. It is related to the cognitive bias of illusory superiority and comes from the inability of people to recognize their lack of ability."

Sounds like my coworker to me. If it doesn't work, he blames others. WOW

    Btw, the effect is also present in subjects you're good at, where it is opposite, people underestimate their actual understanding, and overestimate other's understanding
