linuxxx152805216dI only don't agree with number 7.
If asking is a lot faster than searching, I'll just ask and thus waste less time. Kinda the same with some colleagues regarding questions about software I know a lot about, they're free to ask me, it saves them a lot of time sometimes and I'm happy to help!
Edit; the last one also not entirely.
I in general agree but also, I'm hired to do x, y and z, I don't mind doing p for a short amount of time but I'm not hired for that so that'll be it for me, unless I really like it.
For example, I'm a technical person, don't let me do project management (too much), it's not my thing and I'm not good at it and don't like it 😅
Voxera9326216dI mostly agree but as @linuxxx said, I also consider asking questions a first resolve if I have reason to assume a colleague already knows the answer.
Of cause it can depend on circumstances. If you work as a consultant billing by the hour, there might be a culture of billing all time, in which case the fastest solution might be frowned about, but thats one reason I do not work as a consultant ;)
But otherwise I see no reason to waste time.
Another reason might be if your an intern and your time is so much cheaper than the one you would be asking, but thats borderline valid in my opinion.
cho-uc1447216dTotally agree on number 4...
There are lots of work to do in my place but if I want to do anything I have to get approval from my supervisor.
He is the bottleneck since he is super busy.. so most day I just spend my time reading tech articles 😑
