essentially biological (as opposed to mechanical/electronic) construction] A
person (esp. a low-level bureaucrat or service-business employee) exhibiting
most of the following characteristics: (a) naive trust in the wisdom of the
parent organization or `the system'; (b) a blind-faith propensity to believe
obvious nonsense emitted by authority figures (or computers!); (c) a
rule-governed mentality, one unwilling or unable to look beyond the `letter
of the law' in exceptional situations; (d) a paralyzing fear of official
reprimand or worse if Procedures are not followed No Matter What; and (e) no
interest in doing anything above or beyond the call of a very
narrowly-interpreted duty, or in particular in fixing that which is broken;
an "It's not my job, man" attitude.
