Chapter 33. Personal Character > Intellectual Honesty

33.4. Intellectual Honesty

Part of maturing as a programming professional is developing an uncompromising sense of intellectual honesty. Intellectual honesty commonly manifests itself in several ways:

  • Refusing to pretend you're an expert when you're not

  • Readily admitting your mistakes

  • Trying to understand a compiler warning rather than suppressing the message

  • Clearly understanding your program—not compiling it to see if it works

  • Providing realistic status reports

  • Providing realistic schedule estimates and holding your ground when management asks you to adjust them
