Fraud vs Imposter Syndrome vs D-K effect: You must know what this is :)

Source: Wiki

(1) FRAUDS: These are unqualified people who fool others by trying to show that they are qualified to do something that they are not.

(2) Now, contrast this to those suffering from "IMPOSTER SYNDROME". These are people who are actually qualified to do their jobs, but feel like fakes, due to insecurity or lack of confidence.

You will find both kinds of people in the business world! Frauds & people suffering from Imposter Syndrome. Now, there is a 3rd type: called as the D-K effect!

(3) DUNNING-KRUGER effect: where incompetent people refuse to believe in their incompetence and believe in some kind of superiority!
