What is dunning-kruger effect?

The Dunning-Kruger Effect occurs when your lack of knowledge and skills in a certain area causes you to overestimate your own competence.

Example in the hiring process.

The more inexperienced a hiring manager is in hiring, the more convinced they are of their own judgment, they are more confident in their own abilities (overconfidence effect) to determine who to hire.
