    Well, we all know players like this.

    Yeah I've heard of this before. Im pretty sure that what happens is the unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their ability as above average, much higher than it actually is, while the highly skilled underrate their own abilities, suffering from illusory inferiority.
