Wonderfest discusses the complexity of human overconfidence and the frailty of knowledge. While self-confidence is a prized human attribute, too much confidence can be obnoxious, pernicious, and even deadly. This audience-participation talk will present a simple 10-question quiz to measure an important aspect of individual self-confidence. With analysis and discussion of these measurements, audience members will be better able to calibrate properly their personal levels of self-confidence. The ultimate goal will be a "healthier skepticism" toward one's own depth of knowledge about the world. Presented in collaboration with the Bay Area Skeptics.
