In episode 3, we continue our four part series about health concerns for software developers (part 1 can be found here). The series will examine multiple aspects of our lives and provide some stumbling blocks and dangers to watch out for as well as tips and tricks to avoid them and stay healthy. We will be following the format of Physical Health, Social Health, Mental Health, and finally Financial Health.
In this episode, we will discuss the social health concerns that often face developers. The specific topics discussed in this episode are the differences between introverts and extroverts, the differences between shy and outgoing (not the same as introvert and extrovert) and how that impacts developers working in different types of offices. Next, we discuss overconfidence and impostor syndrome. After that, we discuss boundaries and how incorrect boundaries cause problems, along with discussing the particular social problems that come up during remote work and e-learning situations.
An error that we caught post production was BJ mispronouncing ThingBox early in the IoTease section.
