    How to use "Misestimation" in context?

    Misestimation is a term used in psychology to describe the error of estimating somebody's ability, intention, or other characteristic. It can be either underestimate or overestimate. Misestimation can have a negative effect on our judgement of others, since we may erroneously think that they are not as competent or capable as they actually are.

    Misestimation can often stem from the difficulty in accurately recalling information about others. We are more likely to misestimate someone's ability if we have never met them or if we haven't had an extended conversation with them.
