Sadly it's a common forma mentis these days, even without descending in the monkey show that is QA. I had colleagues that instead of thinking 5 minutes to a solution spent days looking for premade solutions and designed convoluted ways to glue them together. The end results were bug ridden, unmaintaineable and crumbled at the first change.

The simple idea of devising an algorithm was alien to them because "it's not possible to do better than the ones other people already made". Basically they were factory workers, you could swap programming with bending iron bars and they would hardly notice.
