Here's the wikipedia entry on Naive Cynicism. It's a little more roundabout than a simple naive belief that everything is terrible (like an inverse of the Just World Fallacy) and has to do with how we believe others perceive themselves.

In short, we think others are more blind to their own flaws than we are, and in the case of shared work, are more likely to claim credit and blame others than us. That guy on every project ever who does absolutely nothing and then claims to have been instrumental in every step on the project? Probably only about as lazy and incompetent as anyone else on the team, they just had the misfortune to have it pointed out!

Trying to argue from cognitive bias if you're singled out as that guy absolutely will not work, though.

Honesty these comics are so funny. I do wonder what would be kitties reactions to meet themselves in human form. Possibly just to stare at each other I guess.

Alternate Reality Comic NOW @XD (Guest)

I read 'meet themselves in human form' and now all I can think is, "we need an ntk comic about everyone switching species. All the cats get human (or gijinka) forms and all the humans become cats"
We need this now, it would be awesome!
