Discussion on: Why Do Companies Ask For Passion?

In some cases I think companies look for passion in programmers because it means that the person is paying attention to detail and finishing projects in a polished way rather than a poorly tested and unfinished project.

Maybe, in that example, we are talking about passion when we should just call it being professional, because if we are talking about passion per se, maybe it would be more important to be passionate about the field of the company, whether it is medical, games, banking, etc. rather than being passionate about programming in general.
