Motivated by this question about programming and intelligence, I've noticed that people often judge other people's competence in terms of how well they perform on the domains that they have more expertise. A few examples:
- I'm a good programmer. This manager can't program.
- I'm a good manager. This programmer doesn't know how to lead others.
- I'm a good statistician. This applied researcher knows so little about statistics.
- I'm a good applied researcher. this statistician knows so little about the substantive problems in this research context.
In particular, while such claims may be factual statements. The bias occurs when a person's overall competence is evaluated relative to your own standards of expertise, rather than what is objectively important for the other person.
Does this bias of evaluating others competence by your own areas of expertise have a formal name?
