Non-automatic

Automaticity is important for most activities in daily life such as driving a car or crossing the street. Experts use automaticity to store the multitude of activities that make up their expertise. However change requires non-automaticity. Automaticity can block the ability to interrupt old patterns of thinking and acting which is necessary when making transitions. Bringing tacit knowledge up to be re-examined, retained, discarded, or refined enables one to make conscious choices and perform effectively in new situations.
