Seems a lot of people overestimate their abilities compared to the average.
^ @ScottrfYes, there have been other psychological studies where it shows that people tend to be overly optimistic even in the face of facts saying otherwise. That's one reason I decided even though it seems to me most should be able to break 2000, that there may be that fundamental bias, and that in the face of a ~1500 average adult tournament player I don't have a good case to argue otherwise.
Honestly, that's what I call a cool story bro. Such a riveting tale, I honestly copy and pasted it to MS Word, saved it on my hard drive, backed it up on a jump drive, drove to the bank, put the jump drive in the safe deposit box, and will leave it there until my kids turn about 12 (when they can actually state their age, and ask what it is I'm showing them), when I will pick it up, put it in an old USB drive reader and relay this cool story to them and tell them, "Kids, this is what a cool story should look and sound like...not like the stories your generation tells."
A cool story indeed. For an average guy, could I be mistaken and interpret the story above to be on the extreme of the one sided aspect?
Of course you love it but it is completely the opposite of you high intellect confident social creatures.
Now that is funny. People without any knowledge of themselves adopting the above information to the extent of believing that it is pretty much talking as if it were you.
All of you that are guilty, may wish to let go of their brilliance throttle for a little while.
Funny stuff. mr average here enjoyed greatly. Ty
