Maintain altitude, full (or 'enough') power, indicated at approach to STALL.
Use back stick to maintain level.

TOGA, PITCH 15 degrees NOSE UP, indicated at Wind Shear.

Full back stick, full power, CFIT recovery.

All published, all trained, all wrong. Everything is in the "Stick". And the stick is 'invisible'. Without full disclosure, this gets stuck on myth, and bias. Or on a guess at the Pilot's thinking. Excellent way to improve safety, eh?
