comment How is programming affected by spatial aptitude?
I don't think I have more than 2000 hours of experience, although it's not really ike I kept track. Also, needing a couple (read; two) days of recuperation is quite rare. The first couple of days I only need a good night sleep to tackle problems the next day, but I probably work too long, trying to fight through the confusion. If i keep that up long enough, I definitely end up needing to take a few days off coding to be able to look at my code with fresh eyes and instantly see the stupid mistakes I was making. Things that took hours to do, literally only take like 15 minutes after said break.

comment How is programming affected by spatial aptitude?
Thanks for putting so much effort into your answer, some really good info in there. I definitely write code about 10 hours a day, sometimes more. Relaxation may be key here, but that's going to be a tough one to realize. Like you said, I'm probably too passionate about my own projects; I don't want to be doing something else. So while I may physically be doing something other than programming, my mind will still be going at it... I don't think it's possible to stop your mind from doing as it damn well pleases.

comment How is programming affected by spatial aptitude?
@haylem I'm sorry, I meant a just above average total score of the IQ test. The spatial aptitude part was what got the total score down quite a bit. And I live in the Netherlands, although ADD and Autism 'fear' is quite extreme here aswel. If it wasn't for the problems I described above I wouldn't be thinking in the ADD direction.
