The Dunning-Kruger effect: Cognitive Psychology.

It’s a cognitive bias called the Dunning-Kruger effect, where the highly skilled assume that things they find easy are also easy for others, and the unskilled are so incompetent that they can’t recognize their own stupidity.

  1. I follow the law of Karma, and it says that the best disciple always think he is less than other and can do much better (or think that there is still room from improvement).
    When you start feeling that there is room for improvement and can do better, that is the point where your soul is fully enlightened with self-consciousness, and without realizing you’ve already moved ahead of others.
