More learning

A man’s got to know his limitations, as Clint Eastwood once said. A recent study in Psychological Science suggests that the more that people think they know about a topic in general, the more likely they are to allege knowledge of completely made-up information and false facts. The researchers warn that this tendency to over-claim, especially in self-perceived experts, may actually discourage individuals from educating themselves and thus create a menace, not of ignorance, but of the illusion of knowledge. As Mahatma Gandhi is quoted as saying, live as if you were to die tomorrow, learn as if you were to live forever.
