Abstract: 
The overestimation of individual skills or abilities seems to be part of the reality of the human being, when it has not been previously acquired enough of them, can be an obstacle in making appropriate decisions in our daily life, and can also be an indicator of the poor metacognitive ability of an individual. The study of Psychology, sometimes requires the persons involved, complete by themselves, certain questionnaires, to guide the diagnosis of specialists. In this exploratory study, a random sample of 78 students from the Faculty of Psychology of the University of Cuenca was selected, who voluntarily agreed to participate. The results show a behavior that follows the theory raised in the Dunning-Kruger Effect, for the Logic and Vocabulary areas, however it differs in relation to the Humor scale, where the tendency of the self-evaluation with respect to the results from the test follows a direct correlation.
