The Dunning-Kruger Effect

12 July 2010 at 23:01

When peo­ple are incom­pe­tent in the strate­gies they adopt to achieve suc­cess and sat­is­fac­tion, they suf­fer a dual bur­den: Not only do they reach erro­neous con­clu­sions and make unfor­tu­nate choices, but their incom­pe­tence robs them of the abil­ity to real­ize it.

Outside Taipei 101

5 July 2010 at 16:05

The pres­sur­ized ele­va­tor ride up is sur­pris­ingly fast. And the view out the top of Taipei 101 is pretty cool. Like most tourist des­ti­na­tions, it’s the sort of place where you have to exit through the sou­venir shop. Food court in the mall down below is pretty tasty, though. But on the whole, I enjoyed the lively night mar­kets and streets in the other dis­tricts of Taipei more.
