"It can be beneficial to have others believe you are better than you are and the best way to do this is to deceive yourself -- which might be what we have evolved to do. This can cause problems as overconfident people may also be more likely to take risks. If overconfident people are more likely to be risk prone, then by promoting them we may be creating institutions, such as banks and armies, that are more vulnerable to risk." - Vivek Nityananda
