New definition of "Introverted"

Introverted, as it relates to work:
I'm an internally motivated individual. Not giving me goals doesn't mean I don't or won't have any.

Extroverted, as it relates to work:
I'm an externally motivated resource. Public recognition and the stage are what I need. Fail to put me in the spotlight at the monthly team meetings at your own peril.

The little engine that could

There's an old saying:

Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you're right.

This really applies to coding as a form of work and creative outlet.

So very often, the issue is not with the code, but with our *understanding* of the issue. How many times have you seen a work stoppage because the leader didn't take the time to ask questions, and instead relied on their imperfect understanding of the situation/task/issue/patch??
