I spoke to a young (to me) Talmid Chacham about what seems to me to be a disconnect between Brisker lomdus and reticence for psak. He articulated two theories: 1.) R’Chaim, as an individual, was a yarei horaah (in awe of psak?) and for whatever reason this tradition continued. 2.) Per R’Dr. Chaim Soloveitchik—R’Chaim felt that since his methodology was new, psak should continue in the “traditional manner” that amcha was used to/had accepted
My thought—if we accept #2, should it follow the “traditional” phase in over time and be part of psak (think about cantorial music).
