“5. Mr. Artiste - the programmer
He is creating software (sometimes the company's core product/hope of future success) and he isn't limited by the contents of the requirements document. He isn't limited by it because he isn't reading it. He is creating, damn it, and brings his own vision. Definition: Artiste Plus, staying consistent with his vision keeps him closer to his imaginary specification with its imaginary time line (and yes, he's on schedule).”
Heh. Read the rest, it’s dead on.
