Invisible Gorilla Revised Summary

The Illusion of Knowledge

  • Whenever people think they know more than they do, they are under the influence of the illusion of knowledge. Even scientific experts can dramatically overestimate what they know. Until we are asked to produce what we know, we seem blissfully unaware of the shortcomings of our own knowledge. When approaching a project or challenge, one should spend time escaping the illusion of knowledge by finding out what they don’t know. Positive illusions do, however, allow us to take on challenges that we might shrink from if we knew the truth.

  1. I paid the guys at to set up my blog, which is a modification of the standard WordPress blog. If you can’t afford to pay someone to get you going, you can consider using a crowd sourcing service like Kickstarter or Indegogo to raise the necessary funds. Otherwise you can just go to WordPress and see if you can set up your own for free. I don’t think you have to be too tech savvy to do so. Good luck. Let me know if you get something going.
