The more inept you are the smarter you think you are - BBC Future
Psychologists have shown humans are poor judges of their own abilities, from sense of humour to grammar. Those worst at it are the worst judges of all.

Does The Average Person Exist? - Matt Parker- YouTube
The "one size fits all" fallacy and the reality of "one size fits no one" that everybody realizes at some point (upon which time you are aghast others haven't landed in the same reality and it haunts you for decades) is laid clear in this video, incase you needed more proof to the stacks you already have).

What is gender pay gap reporting, and what does it mean? | Society | The Guardian
What’s the difference between the mean and the median figures?
When talking about the gender pay gap people tend to talk about the median figure rather than the mean. The mean is calculated by adding up all of the wages of employees in a company and dividing that figure by the number of employees. This means the final figure can be skewed by a small number of highly paid individuals. The median is the number that falls in the middle of a range when everyone’s wages are lined up from smallest to largest and is more representative when there is a lot of variation in pay.

How Not To Sort By Average Rating
Why it is wrong: Suppose one item has 600 positive ratings and 400 negative ratings: 60% positive. Suppose item two has 5,500 positive ratings and 4,500 negative ratings: 55% positive. This algorithm puts item two (score = 1000, but only 55% positive) above item one (score = 200, and 60% positive). WRONG.
