Why only programmers? This applies to anyone wearing headphones or anyone talking to someone who is wearing headphones.

It doesn't apply to people who aren't engaged in work that is creative or intellectually challenging that requires getting into a deep flow. I've tried explaining to a manager that a regular mid morning or mid afternoon meeting breaks up the day too much and doesn't allow for necessary extended coding periods. He really thought it was ridiculous that I couldn't get straight back into deep concentration. If you've never had to do it you don't get it.
