The 9 traits of a veteran Unix Admin:

  1. Bold
  2. Pretentious
  3. Obfuscated
  4. Lazy x4
  5. Minimalist
  6. Condescending
  7. Inquisitive
  8. Exclusive
  9. Unyielding


Now the original article from 2011 I read for this made those traits sound a lot better, but ultimately that’s about right.

These aren’t inherently bad traits for a systems admin (some are though), but they obviously require some polish before being acceptable in the workplace, but I thought this was worth sharing with the community at large.
