‘Worshipping at the altar of complexity’. Lol. I like that.
My euphanism is a bit more crude, but probably just as accurate. In my day job I call it ‘Baffle them with B*llSh*t’. There are some that just see the world in minute detail, but miss the overall picture (such as using the same antenna). Others do it deliberately. Those that employ this latter technique hope, of course, that you will be so awed by their technical and experiential prowess that you won’t probe deeper into what they really were doing (one of the corollaries of using this technique is personally attacking and disparaging anyone who attempts to do so, because, of course, they don’t have the same level of experience and knowledge and intelligence that you do). I learned very quickly as a Manager that if someone couldn’t step back and summarize, clearly and succinctly, what they had done, and why, without any of the crap or ego, then you had better start worrying and asking pointed questions.
Like I’m doing now. Because they’re likely hiding something (even if it’s only their mistakes).
