A child that still needs to discover its singing voice is generally praised just as much as a professional opera singer. Why do we equally praise both those who unconsciously perform certain tasks meticulously (professionals) and those who have to think and control each and every action? Machiel Keestra calls this phenomenon the ‘paradox of expert action’. In his doctoral dissertation, Keestra introduces a concept that assists in the analysis of this paradox.
