“It’s funny because it’s true.”
^ The website “howtodeal.dev
” is a great example of this saying. It’s so funny, it hurts.
If you have worked in a software development team, I’m sure you would recognize some of these problematic personas. Hopefully, you will have a relaxing sigh when you think about how ridiculous people are.
The website also has some good tips on how to deal with these personas. Here are two of my least favourite:
- The manager I hate working with the most: The Ladder Climber - No comment - they will end up hurting people.
- The developer I hate working with the most: The Aspiring Manager - They end up moving into people management for the wrong reasons - they will hurt people.
I can identify some of my weaknesses in these personas, and I hope you also find yours. 😬
