Tool Fetishism

Instead of thinking the tools don't matter, sometimes people fixate on gear, for example the type of pen a writer might use. 'If I use that pen, I can write the same as that successful author,' goes the thought.

Similar to tool fundamentalism, this focuses more on the physical objects, whereas fundamentalism is more focused on following the exact steps of a process.
