Abstract
The existence of the overconfidence phenomenon was examined using a signal detection paradigm. Fifty-five participants were asked to decide whether th ey heard a signal or noise only, and to rate how certain they were of their decisions. The results confirmed the existence of overconfidence as well a s the "hard-easy" effect.
