People overestimate their judgment on a situation after knowing the outcome

After being presented with the outcome, people are overly confident in their ability to predict this specific outcome. This is commonly referred to as "Hindsight Bias"

(TODO: There was a study done on anagrams, that showed this)

This bias poses a challenge to the acceptance of psychology as a science in the general populus: People will often look at results of studies and will (drawing from their vast experience as the object of examination) claim that the results were obvious all along and a study was not necessary.
