Like you said, prioritization is complicated. There is no one way to define it.

As for enthusiasm, this is the key that would spur the developer to learn and pick up more value for the business. Without enthusiasm, the developer would stagnate and stop growing thus not being able to provide newer/better solutions to a problem.

Looking further, a developer enthusiasm could also be driven by many factors. Overall, humans are just complicated creatures with many environmental factors that could come into play.
