Take a look at the following statistics and see if you can identify a troubling trend:

  • 84% of Frenchmen estimate that they are above average lovers.
  • 68% of University of Nebraska faculty rated themselves in the top 25% in teaching ability.
  • 93% of US students estimate themselves to be “above average” drivers.

See a pattern here?  Overconfidence isn’t just a phenomenon in the general public.  It literally runs rampant in certain quarters of the business world.
