You have a boss. And you probably ARE a boss. So you are familiar with the sentence: I knew it all along (yes yes, I know you have never said it … 🙂 ).

I’m happy to have just discovered that who pronounces that sentence IS WRONG:

Hindsight bias is the inclination to see events that have occurred as more predictable than they in fact were before they took place. […] In psychological experiments of hindsight bias, subjects also tend to remember their predictions of future events as having been stronger than they actually were […]
