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.
