lotd78853yBeing able to decipher what women..err humans mean on level with a FBI interrogator is one or the hidden requirements of the programmer job titles.
balte24593yyes. people do not understand their own intrinsic motives.
if they did, everyone would be a designer.
This is the software industry. Bad communication is a thing. Also you can't blame women for is one when it's basically a sausage fest here man.
Me too man. But people also suck at communication. It's the Curse of Knowledge bias - people assume that once they know something it's obvious for everyone else.
But people are also insecure, we don't like those detailed questions that expose ignorance. But devs and I guess testers gotta ask those questions rather than make assumptions. It's surprising how often "the obvious" was actually not.
Ask those questions questions, man. Listen to that niggly voice.
Can often lead to people either thinking we don't know shit or we're being condescending, but in my experience assumptions are the parent of all fuck ups.
However there is the problem of things not being explained properly. This is what systems analysts are supposed to figure out. And people like project managers and scrum masters are supposed to ensure the right people talk to each other.
Ideally it takes a whole team of people to make a project go, including experienced architectural leads.
