If advancement to a certain level requires an ability to work without being encumbered by an instinct of workmanship, then advancement to that level is strongly biased against those with the capacity to recognize what a high level of workmanship in that field entails.

And one way that advancement to a certain level may require an ability to work without being encumbered by an instinct of workmanship is if one must enthusiastically and loyally carry out the agenda of a higher up who is similarly unencumbered ... so it is to a certain degree a self-perpetuating system.
