몇일전에 20/20 vision 이 무엇인지 DET에서 다뤘는데,
Hindsight 이 “understanding of a situation or event only after it has happened or developed” 즉 뒤늦음 깨달음이라는 것을 알면 이 표현이 무슨 뜻인지 금방 알 수 있다.
[Phrase]
Hindsight is 20/20
  • [Definition] In hindsight things are obvious that were not obvious from the outset; one is able to evaluate past choices more clearly than at the time of the choice.

hindsight is 20/20에 관한 현상을 심리학에서는 이것을 학술화하여  “Hindsight bias” 또는 “knew-it-all-along effect” 라고도 한다.
