I don't think writing good tests is easy, no matter how bright you are. Writing good test is as difficult as writing good production code.
I see a big cargo cult around testing in the Java world (not sure about other communities), which is difficult to see from within, and more difficult to go against, specially if your team lead and your teammates are part of it.
Thanks for the comments!
