I'm not sure I'd label that third quality as hubris if done in a healthy way. I think that's sometimes the way you end up with "greatish" programs with critical flaws that the inventors were too proud to address.

Perhaps a bit of hubris can be a positive as part of a group, but I'm not sure if teams filled with this quality are going to be doing well.

My 2 cents

I have a feeling that these are a bit tongue-in-cheek ;)

I agree. But sometimes you have to be "over-proud" of what you're doing (and willing to do).
