Overconfidence Effect

The Overconfidence Effect is a phenomenon where an individual has excessive confidence in their ability to overcome challenges or dangers. This is often caused by overconfidence, or lack of ability, knowledge, or complete information on how to succeed at a task. A simple example of this can be seen by watching a child try to do things that they have seen grownups do, like perhaps cooking dinner, but without the knowledge or skills necessary to do it successfully.
