Had to bring this up because some people seem to have trouble understanding how calling a programmer lazy can be a good thing or a compliment. Or how writing macros can be seen as a good form of laziness. I'm assuming of course that most of you already knew this and are at least as well as familiar with those thoughts as I am.

Any other virtues that come into mind? Being industrious? Curiosity perhaps?

Something along the lines of patience and unfazed for all those terrible libraries and APIs, stupid specifications/moving goal posts or just generally brain dead software/tools we have to put up with.

Perhaps a little cunning as well for good measure.

I originally included self-overestimation, ambition and power lust to the list of the progress impellents. However, those three from the topic name are also well-known and obvious.

"Discovery is an achievement of those who do not realize the task complexity" (donno who said that, but that's to the self-overestimation).
