Incompetent People Too Ignorant to Know It

While I'm not really sure we needed a study to figure this out, I had to share this link anyway because it is so damn funny.

With more than a decade's worth of research, David Dunning, a psychologist at Cornell University, has demonstrated that humans find it "intrinsically difficult to get a sense of what we don't know." Whether an individual lacks competence in logical reasoning, emotional intelligence, humor or even chess abilities, the person still tends to rate his or her skills in that area as being above average.
