But the few doctors I've consulted and talked with makes me infer that it is this very 'indispensability' that fills them with hubris. Let me list down the elements of this hubris:
- I deserve everything
- I know everything
- I can buy everything
- I can manage everything
Anyway, I wonder if the misconceptions stem from the fact that medical practice relies so much on memory and dexterity of hands; reading people's minds and mapping their ways of thinking and behaving is something else. In that, doctors aren't faring any better, if not worse.
