We know the sentiment applies to newer and younger investigators. I've heard countless review and Program Officer comments which amount to "let's not get too big for your britches, young un!" in my day.
I wonder how much of the Ginther effect is related to sentiments similar to "damn uppity [insert subvocalization]"?
