The Dunning-Kruger Effect

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.

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.
