FALSE AUTHORITY

is one of the assumptive techniques, typically found in business, where an expert in one area of society is assumed to have the same knowledge or positive effect in another area of society.

FALSE AUTHORITY: "Simply because a businessman working in finance is productive, does not mean they will be equally as productive in running a small shop (false authority)."
