The insensitive expert can not meaningfully respond to other's response to expertise, even though the expertise is serving meaningfully the general welfare. The alienation is occasioned by the lack of dialogue between the expert and the non-expert. The lack of dialogue is occasioned by the insensitivity of the expert to the affective responses of the non-expert when confronted by the technical expertise and associated behavior pattern of the expert. Non-experts tend to be put off by the certainty and invulnerability of experts. The following suggest other aspects of experts which occasion aversion affective reactions on the part of non-experts: Absence of ambiguity, airs of superiority, arrogance, hypocrisy, lack of humility, inflexibility, programmed systematic behaviors, narrow interests, tenacity, and self- discipline. Many of the traits which experts consider as virtues---are viewed with apprehension by non-experts. If the expert does not respond with understanding to the at apprehension---the non-expert becomes even more apprehensive and self-defensive; and the alienative process intensifies. The expert may seek higher levels of competency in a self-defensive response to the self- defensive technical affective responses of the non- experts. The non-experts in self-defense are likely to dis-affirm the expertise and interests of the experts--- and engage in further affective self-defense mechanisms which block affective non-communications of the technical experts. These considerations are important in any interaction between experts and non-experts. They become critical when the interactions pertain to the technical aspects of education, community planning, and other political processes. Tragic consequences occur when great political power is yielded to experts who are characterized by alienative competency. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
