What does it feel like to be an Enterprise Architect?

The antipattern known as shifting the burden of proof is something that many of us are plagued with...



Person A: X is objectively better than Y

Person B: I am skeptical. I have not seen you present any evidence that X is better than Y.

Person A: In that case YOU prove that Y is better than or equal to X.

It is allegedly a misuse of burden rules for person A to turn the burden back on B. It is being compared to:

Person A: Santa exists.

Person B: I am skeptical that Santa exists. I have not seen you present any evidence that Santa exists.

Person A: In that case, you prove that Santa doesn't exist.
