Problem

Overemphasis on technological skills

Other Names:
Technological skill overemphasis
Nature:
The social value system tends to focus elite status on certain technological skills, directing impetus away from the development of supportive and service skills, so that adequate, useful skills are not being designed and developed. Because of an unconscious tendency to identify self-worth with job status, the design and development of these latter skills are associated with belittling images of vocation, impoverished by the absence of any value placed on the aspect of service.
