52. Cognitive biases in risk management – Déformation professionnelle – Alex Sidorenko

Déformation professionnelle is a French phrase, meaning a tendency to look at things from the point of view of one’s own profession rather than from a broader perspective. It is often translated as “professional deformation” or “job conditioning,” though French déformation can also be translated as “distortion.” The implication is that professional training, and its related socialization, often result in a distortion of the way one views the world.[1]

As a term in psychology, it was likely coined by the Belgian sociologist Daniel Warnotte[2] or Russian-American sociologist Pitirim Sorokin.
