Key words being "greater than it is" and "Wikipedia". (ETA And it's baffling that people including whoever writes this Wikicrap accept the links to illusory superiority despite the fact that none of the studies cited have found any such link. On the contrary, Dunning and Kruger found the overwhelming trend was that people with lower abilities, in a specific domain among a group of peers, did generally rate themselves lower (though just not quite as much as they should have). But you'd never know it because, well 'science'. AKA BS science.)
