Do you think it's relevant that they're young? As in, if they were older developers then they'd probably have figured out whatever it was they need to do to "stay curious" by now?

Good point! I tend to think that it has more to do with the experience. Better description would be impatient and without adequate experience. Also there is a personality trait that I think can be involved here - always following latest technology trends, without a real need. Debugging and solving complex problems is often painful, but it helps to profoundly understand given technology. What is more, it builds an engineering toolkit, that can turn out to be quite universal regardless what technology you are working with.
