Mob programming changed that for me. I saw that others needed to google heavily too. Just like me, they remembered there were many sorting algorithms, but needed to check how a particular one would be implemented - they knew, just like me, the word to google for. And obviously, it's not like that is a problem we need to solve every day in the real life of a programmer, that's where libraries come in.
There's still other things that come in as a little voice in my head, trying to talk down the programmer me.
- I don't take joy in all the same types of programming work as others around me do
- I don't pay attention to all the cool libraries that are emerging and their inner workings for comparison purposes, still often happy to go with what I got
- I'm more interested in mender than maker types of programming
