Two important Lessons I keep learning over and over

I keep learning and re-learning two important lessons.

  1. Technology people have no concept of negotiations.  I believe in discussion and negotiations.  Technology people tend to come with this "take it or leave it" mentality.
  2. Asking questions intimidates people.  This is the one that I just don't get.  It seems that the more questions I ask, the madder people get at me.

I hate stereotypes and generalizations, but what can I say... IT is filled with socially challenged people. I can count the people I've met that are really brilliant and make good managers and techies on one hand.
