    Well yeah, sometimes it does turn out more efficient in the end, but there's nothing wrong with getting a reliable result over a only-slightly-more-efficient one.

    I just know that even when I *know* that I'm choosing the dumb way to do things, just because I'd rather do things my own way. Even if I was about to do it the "established" way before someone ORDERS me to do it that way... I automatically start planning to do the opposite.

    I guess it's sort of a destructive tendency. You just got to play the odds, I suppose. Play it safe when the stakes are too high and go for broke when you can. It's hard to tell which is which when you're up close and personal though.

    Rules be damned, when I have something to do, I'll do it the fastest way that will produce the best results (speed and quality are not necessarily mutually exclusive).

    Thank God for my ENxJ boss that knows to give me work, back off and let me do it how I do it best.

    I follow rules and procedures. I actually don't mind them until they affect me and my own code then I have a probelm with the rules. My dad calls me "a con man's lawyer" because if possible I try to find loop holes or cracks within the rules and expose it or use it to my benefit.

    I almost completely ignore them/don't care about them. I pay attention to them to the extent of checking if my actions are within them, if they aren't, I do it anyway, and either find a loop hole, or just make it not appear to be breaking the rule. (Of course, if there's no penalty to breaking said rule, then screw that, I'll just openly break it if the situation warrants it).
