I'm relying on the definition from the Dreyfus model of skill acquisition, the chart on the second page does a better job explaining than I could do in a comment!

As far as I'm aware Dreyfus initial purpose was to criticise artificial intelligence and argue that is not possible to repeat some brain activities with machine. In the process of arguing they developed this theory of expertise (which is not based on empirical evidence, I haven't read original paper only critics). So I would take this idea with a grain of salt
