True! It sounds so cliche but really, as long as you have a solid grasp on the fundamentals, you'll find it easier to reason about things which puts you in a better perspective for asking right the questions.
In contrast, I also met people who like to memorize stuff, (some even gatekeep this) but at the end of the day, whatever you methods are, as long as you're productive, I don't think it matters that much.
Thanks for the compliment! (I've always wanted to become a ninja.)
