I suppose this is blatantly obvious to others, but I've updated my mental psak model. In the past I've used a delicate dance analogy between the poseik and his community (TBD) as to his acceptable range in psak and what the community will accept. This could have also been expressed as a two circle Venn diagram (but where in the intersection do you land?) It occurs to me we need a third circle (or maybe this is better expressed as two magnetic fields pulling on a piece of metal = the poseik), which represents what other poskim would find acceptable. This would explain R' Schachter's reference to poskim we disregard (e.g., Rogatchover, R'Avi Weiss?) because they are something like "too creative" (me = outside consensus of other poskim?)
