  1. Experts look for ways to apply their skills beyond where it’s actually useful. E.g. a doctor promoting treatment where prevention would be better.
  2. Once an expert decides on something, it can be very difficult to challenge their decision. Even if it’s the wrong one.
  3. As a consequence, their advice is readily accepted and rarely questioned.
