This is a result of human's nature to find the shortest route to completion - whatever the risks, in fact I believe this nature skews our perception
Competency is where the problem lies, not necessarily within the incompetent either... The cycle which produces the deviancy is as follows:
We begin (in reference to our task) unconsciously incompetent
- we do not know about the task and therefore we do not know we cannot do it.
We then discover the task and become consciously incompetent
- but from this comes the need to learn and train.
So after learning and training we become consciously competent
- we are fully trained and fully aware of the task we are carrying out. We are
diligent and follow each step. We know the whole procedure.
However over time we become complacent, relaxed, we gain confidence in our ability and our conscientiousness drops, it is here we become
- almost equally as hazardous as carrying out the task without competency this stage in the competency circle is where
people skip steps, become autonomous and make mistakes.

EDIT - To add, this scares the crap out of me when we talk about pilots becoming unconsciously competent!
