Brain Candy

I sometimes find articles out on the Internet that just shine with promise and new information, or else cause me to spew milk out my nose. Some are directly related to game development, while others are more indirect.

Unskilled and Unaware of it

This article from the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology discusses how those with lower skills in a particular area are generally not an effective judge of how good they are at that skill. For example, poor spellers generally overrate themselves a great deal more than good spellers, who are more likely to underrate their own abilities. This is also why you get people who insist on telling un-funny jokes, and why so many shareware and freeware games have horrible programmer art.

The reason I like this article so much is that I like to remind myself that there are an endless supply of things out there that I do poorly without realizing it.
