Today’s mood

Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
In a world of magnets and miracles
Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
The ringing of the division bell had begun

Along the Long Road and on down the Causeway
Do they still meet there by the Cut

There was a ragged band that followed in our footsteps
Running before time took our dreams away
Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
To a life consumed by slow decay

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
With friends surrounded
The nights of wonder

Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again
Dragged by the force of some inner tide

At a higher altitude with flag unfurled
We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world

Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
There’s a hunger still unsatisfied
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
Though down this road we’ve been so many times

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
The taste was sweeter
The nights of wonder
With friends surrounded
The dawn mist glowing
The water flowing
The endless river

Forever and ever

High hopes, Pink Floyd 1994

Giova ricordare

L’effetto Dunning–Kruger è una distorsione cognitiva a causa della quale individui inesperti tendono a sopravvalutarsi, giudicando a torto le proprie abilità superiori alla media. Questa distorsione è attribuita alla incapacità metacognitiva da parte di chi non è esperto in una materia, di riconoscere i propri errori.
Una reale competenza potrebbe al contrario indebolire la fiducia in se stessi, poiché individui competenti sarebbero portati a vedere negli altri un grado di comprensione equivalente al proprio. David Dunning e Justin Kruger della Cornell University hanno tratto la conclusione che: “l’errore di valutazione dell’incompetente deriva da un giudizio errato sul proprio conto, mentre quello di chi è altamente competente deriva da un equivoco sul conto degli altri”.
