Inter-rater disagreement is desirable

A few recent reads/listens, including Why Greatness Cannot Be Planned by Kenneth O. Stanley suggest that inter-rater disagreement is a strong signal for something that is potentially worthwhile.

  1. Is there a succinct term for this approach?
  2. Any examples where it’s actively used?
  3. Does it work?
