You wouldn't happen to have a sexy beard I could throw pencils at to see if they get stuck would you?

This is me. Once I get comfortable with a job I tend to find ways to innovate and fix problems or road blocks that prevent everything from running smoothly and it often times results in more work being put on my shoulders that I didn't need to do. I refuse supervisor positions though. I don't like the competition those positions breed and I feel as though a forced competition caters more towards sociopaths rather than people with skills.

Tesla wanting to provide people with free energy. He wasn't motivated to innovate out of competition. That'd be Edison and he electrocuted a puppy just to force us to pay for energy.

When it comes to phones, Idk what the person who made that example meant.

They also used the race to the moon as an example. My rebuttal was that I doubt any of the actual engineers and scientists cared about beating Russia.
If they had free reign to innovate then we'd probably be much further.

I do that too, only I *do* take the supervisor position and hold it for however long it suits my resume to hold it, and then when I leave, typically the whole roof collapses on everyone that didn't want to listen to me. I'd make a career out of doing this if that were actually possible.

I.e.: "What do you want to be when you grow up?"
Me: "A destroyer of worlds."
:-P
