Obvious Choices

One downside of working with experienced people is that, some experienced people tend to be opinionated, and the trouble with opinions is that opinions are, well, instantaneous reactions based on things they learned in the past. You can wake up an opinionated person and ask a question that you know this person has an opinion on, and that person (self included, on occasion) will most likely blurt out that opinion without even understanding the context. Unless careful, it is easy to get trapped into that mindset, and start enjoy being opinionated, and consequently, making or advocating “obvious” choices.
