I know about Dunning-Kruger... where to put it bluntly, one overestimates oneself.
I am looking for a definition/name, to further research and reference in discussions with my peers, for a bias, that defines the following behavior:
- The person A has knowledge X in a field Y.
- The person estimates a problem in the field Y as being of complexity Z.
- Though, another person - B, in the field Y, having knowledge greater than X, sees Z as a much lesser problem or not a problem at all.
- Implying that it's not worth solving, or that solution to a greater problem automatically solves the lesser one.
Of course, given that person B estimation is unbiased, therefore objective.
For example, I'm a software engineer with fair amount of experience and I can freely speculate (make educated guesses) about problems/solutions in fields outside of my immediate proficiency.
If, given the knowledge I have, I would estimate a problem in this outside field as generally/objectively BIG where people actually inside the field would not.
How is the condition called? (Assuming it's already defined)
This somehow might be related to Confirmation bias, but I do not commit to action, I abstain from it, because I see it as much too complex for me to tackle.
