ask what it is supposed to do


Real life example: Hard to do when it was written in Ruby by a programmer that no longer works at the company, there is no documentation, and I'm the only other dev that's even ever worked with Ruby.

but it is not challenging. I know what I am doing


I've had to design some algorithms that nobody, even PhD level people weren't able to solve. Granted, by the time you get a PhD you approach every problem with the hammer you know, but still, this stuff was freaking complicated. And quite frankly, I had no idea how to approach the problem, but because I kept an open mind to crazy ideas, I was, and still am, the only person to have come up with a workable implementation that the company uses to this day.
