When talking about programmer types, there are three personas: Mort, Elvis, and Einstein. Through deep research and extensive analysis, I have determined that there is a fourth type: Mortenstein. This programmer is an Einstein who is oportunistic. He or she will grab any tool available to do a job quickly - it doesn't matter if the tool is complicated or not - so long as it gets the job done quickly. My boss suggested that there are a lot of Mortensteins in the Perl community!
I new it long time ago, but having a name for this programmer type is excellent!
