I like programming, and I enjoy delivering programs that are useful.

However I'm not hyped, I'm not "enthusiastic", and I want to close my IDE after a day of work and do other stuff.

Do I qualify for "passionate programmer"? What does that even mean?

@jacek Being about to just stop something and move on with your life is a quality.

I sell my obsessive tendencies as passion because that's useful for employers but I know it's taking a toll on me.
