Discussion on: Do you ever get frustrated with your Junior Developer(s)?

When I have managed interns in the past, I get more frustrated when they come to me after trying and failing for hours. I also have adopted that in my own career. I used spend hours trying to solve a problem I knew that a more senior team member could help with, all because I wanted to prove I could do it. I found that my solution always was much messier and took way longer than if I had just asked. Likewise, I cause more work for them because they would later have to go back in and fix something I did wrong.
