In science:

The intuitive reason is that in higher dimensions phenotypic identity also implies strategic identity.
Evolutionary game dynamics in phenotype space
We find that the abundance of cooperators in the mutation-selection equilibrium is an increasing function of the phenotypic mutation rate and a decreasing function of the strategic mutation rate.
Evolutionary game dynamics in phenotype space
Also in a cultural model, it can be the case that the phenotypic mutation rates are higher than the strategic mutation rates: for example, people might find it easier to modify their superficial appearance than their fundamental behaviors.

Controlling End User Computing Applications - a case study
So, a manipulable test has essentially no capacity to reject a strategic expert.
A nonmanipulable test
Many tests that control for type I error have essentially no capacity to reject theories produced strategically.
A nonmanipulable test
The results of Sandroni (2003), Vovk and Shafer (2005), Olszewski and Sandroni (2008) and Shmaya (2008) show that, like calibration, many observable properties of the data-generating process can be obtained by a strategic forecaster, no matter how the data evolves in the future.
A nonmanipulable test
However, these strategically produced forecasts may remain bounded away from the predictions of the data-generating process, and these forecasts need not have all observable properties of the datagenerating process simultaneously (only the properties used to define some specific manipulable test).
A nonmanipulable test
Nonmanipulability is in our opinion a desirable property (at least as far as Bob knows in advance the test that will be used), because it ensures the feasibility of the rejection of a strategic, but otherwise completely uninformed, expert.
A nonmanipulable test
Consider the question of whether a strategic, but uninformed, expert can pass a random prequential test (which does not reject the data-generating process).
A nonmanipulable test
The results showing that prequential tests (and even randomizations over prequential tests, Proposition 3 withstanding) are manipulable, combined with the fact that some nonprequential tests are nonmanipulable, poses a difficulty for the prequential principle (as far as testing potentially strategic experts goes).
A nonmanipulable test
