Open letter to Julius Malema – Dunning-Kruger effect

The “Dunning-Kruger” effect also “Mount Stupid” or “Smug Snake”, occurs where people fail to adequately assess their level of competence — or specifically, their incompetence — at a task and thus consider themselves much more competent than everyone else. This lack of awareness is attributed to their lower level of competence robbing them of the ability to critically analyse their performance, leading to a significant overestimation of themselves.  In simple words it’s “people who are too stupid to know how stupid they are”.[rationalwiki.org]

Dear Julius Malema,

This letter will be short, since the point of this letter is simple.

Have you ever noticed that the people that you accuse, blame and verbally abuse, never truly respond to your “barking”?

The answer is simple: “never argue with a fool” – every wise person knows this.  You said that “studying towards your BA Honours degree in Philosophy was a difficult challenge”, but a greater challenge for you will be to walk and talk with true wisdom.  Being wise comes with emotional maturity which no education system can teach you.

Notice the “Dunning-Kruger” effect.  It occurs when people fail to adequately assess their level of competence (or specifically their incompetence) at a task, and thus consider themselves much more competent than everyone else. In simple words, it’s “people who are too stupid to know how stupid they are”. 

Take note of the words of King Solomon: “A worthless man digs up evil, while his words are like scorching fire”.  “Fools have no interest in understanding; they only want to air their own opinions”.  “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkened unto counsel is wise”.

Make a study of the book of Esther and then carefully think about the life and path of “Haman” This will be your destiny unless you turn from “your evil ways”.  The choice is now in your hands.  You’ve got only two outcomes: “Be a fool” or “be wise”.

    Study the book of Esther & carefully think about the life of “Haman”. It will be @Julius_S_Malema destiny unless he turn from his evil ways

    @Julius_S_Malema and others are totally blind to the promises that were made to the people of SA. #JuliusMalema (“Haman”) does not know the “plot”
