Discussion on: What is a type of "overconfidence" you have observed in developers?

You want a rant, cause this is how you start a rant

Nah I'm kidding, but what I've observed and experienced first hand, my rant would boil down to the following:

They don't listen! Like nothing, nada. Like why even bother hiring employees or being part of a team if you're going to dismiss everything they say or recommend because you know better? And they're not dismissing juniors. They're dismissing anybody who they don't admire or consider equal.

This is a huge issue, especially if/when they reach leadership positions.
