Among the Inept, Researchers Discover, Ignorance Is Bliss

Among the Inept, Researchers Discover, Ignorance Is Bliss:

On the humor test, in which participants were asked to rate jokes according to their funniness (subjects' ratings were matched against those of an 'expert' panel of professional comedians), low-scoring subjects were also more apt to have an inflated perception of their skill. But because humor is idiosyncratically defined, the researchers said, the results were less conclusive.



NOTE TO SELF: Add "idiosyncratically" to the super set of "subjectively".
