This is a beautiful map of economics and makes me want to read more on the subject.

The worth of the individual based on their role in society.

According to this hierarchy, the Technical Writer is a "loser."

Possibly true for all front-line individual contributors relative to a VP. Depends on the company.

It's work enough for the individual to overcome this label: not associate self-worth with role in society.

How in the world can the profession overcome this?

I'll bet there's an answer in that field.

But, in what world do the laws of probability include the idea of a technical writer having a chance to talk reality to a VP or a C-level suit? They're more likely to ask for input from their barbers.
