Perhaps you're one of the people that think John should continue to try to climb the ladder until he's an example of the Peter Principle? I'm with John - I do this job for the satisfaction, not the money. Promotion to manager? Blah - give it to someone that deserves to be punished. Money:Stress ratio is always better further away from the top-end.
Your question is strange. Talking to people about non-nuts-and-bolts things is what I'm considering a soft-skill. (Is this out of step with broader community definitions?)
Being able to do it well is, obviously, desirable. Which brings me to the reason I mentioned the concept. If you were merely trying to find out information with your question, it sucks. It can be seen to make inferences about John's character that a more skilled person would not have done when trying to find out the same info.
Certainly, while it is true that its been about 23 years now since I first hit AltaVista, I'm capable of seeing far more nuance that your comment appears to acknowledge.

"When you are dead, you won't even know that you are dead. It's a pain only felt by others; same thing when you are stupid."
Ignorant - An individual without knowledge, but is willing to learn. Stupid - An individual without knowledge and is incapable of learning. Idiot - An individual without knowledge and allows social media to do the thinking for them.
I generally go to the question my granddaughter asked:
Why do they called it 'fixed' when you are breaking them?
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, navigate a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.
