Developer traits: Hubris vs Humility

Worst developer trait: Hubris {belief that only your ideas make sense and only you understand the technology and your coding skills are better than everybody else’s} : You have reached a plateau.

Good developer trait: Humility {belief that your code is not always correct and that you can make mistakes and that you can learn better coding techniques from others} : You are always growing and learning.

There is a ton that can be said for the above two, and this post will probably grow as I can come up with examples of both as well as other traits that I think make a developer a good developer or a bad developer
