Ego's in IT

Posted on Sun, Jul 25, 2010 at 12:05 AM

I am in the IT field and I find it so irritating that so many people in the IT industry have serious ego problems.

It's rare for one IT person to say to another "good job" or "smart thinking". Just today my colleague stepped out of the office and an issue came up that I was able to fix and when she returned she was questioning what I did and asking to see my code and implying that I copied her code from another part of the program instead of just saying "thanks".

She even went so far as to remind me that at one time when I first started here years ago that she taught me the in's and out's of this program. I have always found that people in IT hate asking for help and love talking about what they have done. Why am I in the career again?—IT Ego-Hater
