Most developers are morons, pt 3

In this post, we'll discuss the top 13.6% of developers.

You might think, after reading the previous two posts, that I'm going to be praise these developers, or even claim to be in this cohort myself.

However, things aren't so black and white.

I've worked with many developers who are much smarter and more talented than me, and I can say safely say that about 90% of them are people I'd never want to associate with again.

These developers are usually on the spectrum and have amazing tech intelligence, but little emotional intelligence. Their people skills are minimal and they usually loathe having to work with other people. While they have dozens of algorithms and data structures memorized, their social skills only include rudeness and toxicity.

This only goes to show a lesson we all eventually learn: you can be the smartest person in the world, but if you're incapable of working with or understanding other people, you aren't getting anywhere. If you're an introvert, you've got an even harder job.

    So basically, when you are the competent one, you like dishing out, but suddenly switch to "wanna talk" mode when you're the incompetent one.

    Looks like you have to work on your "emotional intelligence".

    The top three developers I have ever worked with all three have superb social skills.

    I have worked with good devs whom had abysmal social skills, but the top ones I have had the pleasure to learn from were not afflicted by this.

    Who's to say how "it usually is".

    I wanna go out on a limb here and not accuse OP of being X but that maybe, just maybe, she has had crappy experiences with other devs and has left OP a bit jaded concerning future interactions with devs.

    Seriously, what has motivated you to share your "expertise" with us? I put it in quotes because, my goodness is it misguided to be polite. Where do you even see yourself in any of this? Are you even a developer? While I follow everything you've posted (though agree with none of it) I don't understand what the hell you're even saying.
