I've always presented this idea in terms of the trial lawyer vs the detective. The job of the detective is to find the truth. The job of the lawyer is represent the client. Two very different games. When we are driven by ego we deploy our lawyer self to play the legal game. When we are trying to solve a puzzle we deploy our detective self to play the mystery game.
