The successes of the nuclear shell model in explaining the stability properties of magic nuclei are challenged by the observation of rotational bands for which the sequential filling of single-particle energy levels of the spherical shell model are not respected. This Letter proposes criteria for identifying the shell-model configurations appropriate for describing such bands of states.
