Relation to idea inoculation
==Relation to idea inoculation==
Scope for improvement seems related to [[idea inoculation]] and [[inferential distance]]. If the scope for improvement of a technique is not made clear on initial exposure to the technique (e.g. due to a large inferential distance between the [[Explainer|person explaining the technique]] and the [[Learner|person reading about the technique]], or the person explaining the technique not being an expert), then this person can develop a resistance to further attempts to explain the technique (due to idea inoculation).<ref>Duncan A.
