Is that really me?

I was reading, in The Times, today some if the insights that social psychology teaches us about ourselves.....
We overestimate the extent to which others agree with us,
We underestimate the degree to which we are following everyone else,
We believe we are able to vary our behaviour depending upon circumstances, BUT,
that others are predictable,
We believe we are funnier, cleverer and more popular than we actually are,
We all think we are a better than average driver,
We are aware that these cognitive errors exist ......
But, that they only exist in others.

Come you lot will you pull yourselves together!
