    To be fair to doctors: I expect that these sorts of results would be similar for other professions self-rating their own competency.

    It's a reminder that giving people power and authority over others will often lead to problems, and therefore the importance of informed consent and ensuring all individuals are provided as much autonomy as is possible, rather than having other people 'manage' them.
