re: What IT stereotype bothers you? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I'm not sure if this will qualify as a stereotype.

It is this notion that developers are developers because they are "Computer Addicts".

A pilot, in the cockpit for a 9 or 12 or 15 hour flight, is very likely addicted to flying, and a "Plane Addict", I guess.

Carpenters are thus addicted to hammers and nails, wood and finishes. Tailors and seamstresses are addicted to sowing machines and thread bobbins.

How does using a computer in my line of work make me an addict?

And yes, some ladies from our part of the world bet not to enter relationships with developers, as they argue, we're 'married to computers'.

Very sad for them, as developers can be some of the simple-minded people to be with. ;)
