An arrogant developer does not listen to others
If you don't listen to others, you'd be severely limited. Most learning in a classroom requires one to listen. And sometimes you're so stuck that even an outsider can get you unstuck with a suggestion.

it's toxic for the team and think they are better than anyone else and think they are always right, despite have lots of similarly intelligent minds counter arguing.
Arguments should be weighed on their merits. If you don't then the whole arguing thing becomes a waste of time.

Nowadays if you're only a developer the best you can be is mediocre. It's not only about programming. Anyone can learn to program and the "challenge" as you say, is not there.
A programmer and a developer aren't the same thing; and for an outsider, what I do is boring; if it were sexy, we'd be talking about generics and interfaces at parties.

Fabio Franco wrote:
If you think it's boring, why are you doing it? Most developers I know say it's fun.
I like boring! Most of the bosses I know don't like surprises either, especially if it involves a deadline. Boring is predictable, with known results. Boring things (and people) can be relatively fun too.

Fabio Franco wrote:
It's important at this point to not be "arrogant" and think you know best than everyone combined, but rather be "confident"
Even arrogance has its limits; also, the manager often has more knowledge about the project than me, since they also know about the financial aspect of the project and the position of the customer. Most devs also have something they specialize in, and even an arrogant brat can't learn everything.
