re: What is a type of "overconfidence" you have observed in developers? VIEW POST


The most sure sign of overconfidence I often come across is oversimplification. In other words; stating that complicated things are, in fact, very simple and will only take a couples of minutes to fix/get done.

Statements like: "It's only data, put it in a table." or "How hard can it be?" raises a flag that a person might not fully appreciate the full scope of the problem or underestimate the development process.
