I 'm regular on ted talks . watch this Tali sharot's - the optimism bias

you will start debating on this topic. There is a fine difference between optimism and over confidence.

Kids best example of this,  its summer and our apprtment overlooks the pool. My 2 year old see's so many adults in the pool ,swimming. She thinks she can swims,she even shows how they are moving in the pool. what is this? optimism or over confidence?

she is optimistic that she will not get drowned and she is confident that she can swim. Can an adult who does not know swimming feel the same? so is ignorance a bliss and  helps us in being optimistic?
