Are there any skills that people get worse at the more they practice?
Typically to get better at something, we practice it over and over. But, are there any skills that we get worse at the more we practice them? I know it sounds like a weird question, but I was wondering if there were any examples.
I think being a therapist or having therapeutic skills can get worse over time. If it is so regularly practiced to have 'empathy' for others as a job, there is some kind of deadening of one's empathic and listening abilities at an advanced stage of being a licensed psychologist or therapist. They can become more rigid or judgmental in their approach and less effective in helping others with their emotional or psychological problems.
