Er... this'll probably sound like a really odd quesitons but...

Like the title of this thread says, what do u think is worse: A. People who think they can do something but can't OR B. People who think that they can't do something but can? And why?

Personally, I find people who think they can do something is worse, because they always think that they're just as good as everyone else or maybe better... It annoys me when people like that talk like they know everything about seomthing, but really don't.

For example - I have an uncle who thinks he can sing, ::and I know this is mean:: but honestly, he couldn't sing to save his life... It's like listening to nails clawing at a blackboard.... >.< .........

Definitly B my friend. Some peoples don´t do what they MUST to do I add this too if I may...

Wow, pretty hard question to answer. -_-
i would have to go with B, because at least they aren't bragging, and can do something.
I think bragging is alright but too much sucks. -_-

think both A and B are pretty annoying...buh i think B is worse. personally i cant stand ppl with no self comfidence. i rather have some1 thats confident themselves, talk big and acaully try to accomplish it. i mean every1 talks big sometime or another, whether its to some1 esle or in ur head....how do u think goals are made? i cant stand ppl who dont believe in themselves and think themselves inferior to others. its like one of those repititious anime dramas where the main character is a lame butt and cant think better of him/herself while the viewer might be going "WTF"....yea i know lots of ppl like that...annnoying aint it? having push them everyday so they dun kill themselves in greif or something.... :sweat:

Why settle of 'good' when you can have DIM SUM BAR!!!

Well, me being more like type B, I will say type a, because they really do annoy me. Especially when They start boasting about what they think they know but really don't (actually I do this too, but only when someone asks me and thinks I know everything about it, so I'll just go with the flow) . ^_^'

I don't like any of them winter...They're both pathetic. I get aggravated by those who think they know it all(*hint hint...wink wink*) and I get even more aggravated by those who can do something but can't. So all in all, I hate both...but I think I fit in the group where people can do something but can't...ironic isn't it?

Perhaps the most important question is WHY each of these groups of people behave the way they do. After all, the motive that drives a person to behave in a certain way is key to understanding that person.

In my personal experience, there are people out there in the big bad world who directly tie their self esteem to their abilities. These types of people can never be wrong, because it would mean there was something wrong with them. I feel sad for these people, since I realize that they do not understand there is more to your place in life than what you know or what you can do. I also find it very difficult to relate to people in this group, since any conversation you have with them will usually end with their opinion being the only valid one. I cannot recall encountering anyone who was honestly unaware that they could not do something they claimed that they could.

By the same token, there are people who can accomplish something, but either honestly have no clue about their talent OR they are surrounded by others who are so much better that they become intimidated. The real question for the second group would be when confronted with the situation, do they simply withdraw, or do they make a big scene about "poor, poor, pitiful me." For those who withdraw, they may just need additional encouragement to explore their talent and use it to everyone's benefit. I utterly despise the scene makers, since they are throwing in the towel just because they are not among the the best at something. And they are being hypocrites; to act like they cannot do something when they know full well they are capable.

As to which group is worse, I guess neither is necessarily worse than the other, although I might have more (conditional) sympathy for the B group. Both groups are denying the truth---perhaps the real test of which is worse should be a measure of how hard they try to convince YOU that the lie is truth...... :D

Well i leave the choice in the hands of others. They can deside wether i'm type A or B. And yes like most here already said type A people are annorying sometimes. Tho i don't mind if they prove they can do something real good.
And i agree with xandman, the world is full of lies. Damn sick world... hmpf...

Has to be number "a" , people like that can be quite funny in some ways, but most the time they just make me sick..

I would have to go with "a". That type is more likely to harm others through their own beliefs than group "b".

a version of this question was posed and answered a few years back. In a nutshell, incompetent people overestimate their competence, while highly competent people tend to underestimate their competence. It's evidence of the saying, "A fool knows everything; a wise man knows nothing."

What was interesting about the study is that, even after shown proof of their own incompetence, incompetent people *still* continued to rate their own competence quite highly. "Indeed, across the four studies, participants in the bottom quartile not only overestimated themselves, but thought they were above-average."

I have the same problem with my brother. He's the Type A, he's learning to play guitar, he's a beginner, and at the same time he sings, or I should say, he thinks that he sings.
First he's terrible playing the guitar, I think that I play better than him and I don't even know a bi t about it.
Second, he sings horrible, and he likes to show to everyone that he can do it, it's really annoying.
Type A are the worst!!!!!!
