This thread really is really resonating with my experiences, both good and bad ones. I'll try to sum up my experience so briefly:
First the bad:
The toxic 'anti-learn' folks are around, with so many variances. I try to persuade them to find joy in their work, but to them it's "...just my job, I'll get what I have to do done and then go home and not think about it". Never learn anything new unless they're explicitely directed to use it. Or "...I just have to do this for ten more years and then I can retire...". They'd be wiser to change their careers now when they're still young enough to live life. I'd rather be dead already if I was in their miserable state.
And the best!
The learners, the knowledge-sharers! These are the people in techie careers of all types (and then again, not necessarily techies) They are a joy to know and work with! Something new comes their way and they willingly share it, or they seek out their coworkers/neighbors/friends. They share in the fun you have of learning too. Keep in touch with these folks. You can always get joy from learning, even if it doesn't pay dividends!(e.g. even learn to juggle!)
A teacher in high school told me to never stop learning, never stop reading things, keep connections that matter. It was the best advice I ever got.
