imageThe psychological deformation is a disputable issue in any profession, because different people go through it in different ways. However, the overall tendency can be separated out, and perhaps, it is a time when we can say that the programmers have their own special psychological portrait that is conditional on their professional activities.

I often faced a similar opinion, and I did not attach great significance to it, but when a female staff of our organization congratulated the programmers on February 23rd (a former soviet military holiday), calling them "cosmic forces", I have decided to arrange some emphasis on this issue, because one of my occupations directly linked with psychoanalysis.

I just recently have come across a hit parade of the most annoying things for the programmer on the internet.

10. Comments that explain “how” but do not explain “why”


In the university where I was a student studying a course of programming, we were taught to make detailed comments to the code. It’s better to have too many comments than to have too few. Unfortunately, sometimes this advice grows into the paranoia, namely programmer comments every single line of code. For example:

$r = $n / 2; // Set $r to $n divided by 2

// Loop while $r - ($n/$r) is greater than $t
while ( abs( $r - ($n/$r) ) > $t ) {
$r = 0.5 * ( $r + ($n/$r) ); // Set $r to half of $r + ($n/$r)
}
