I much prefer a developer that will make some unoptimal code than someone who will try to be clever and write something that's really hard to understand

I prefer that too, by far

If you have some reliable unit tests [...] things shouldn't break

You have a point here, but I don't reject any form of abstraction and complexity. I think they're necessary. My point is that it's often too generic, for the sake of having something at only one place in the code.

As developers, we sometimes need to resist the temptation to refactor all the things at all costs.
