Discussion on: Why developers are SO sh*t at estimating!

I rather overestimate than underestimate. We use points to estimate in the team. If the estimates are far apart then the lowest and the highest explain their position, after which we estimate again. Of course some stories can take longer based on uncertainty but I don't feel I have to estimate low in order to impress my team.
