Programming's Impact on Personality

Mon, Aug 20, 2012 - 6:08pm -- Isaac Sukin

Tim from Crowdcademy recently wrote about the ugly side of programming:

I've also discovered that learning to code can have a big impact on your personality. Coding uses a lot of thinking patterns that I hadn't really used since my math and statistics classes in college, and even back then not in this intensity. As a result I've become more focused, more logical and smarter. But I've also become more detached from everyday life and less fun to hang out with.
