I realized I have a really soft spot for really smart, dorky people who are good TEACHERS. And by good teachers, I mean people who can challenge you to think on your own, but not in a way that is condescending or intimidating. People are smart and who love to share their knowledge with you in a way that breaks it down, is very understandable, and doesn’t discriminate based on background knowledge. People who give you a chance to show your abilities. When they teach, they teach to everyone, because everyone should have a fair chance to learn (especially as a team!). They are willing to tolerate mistakes as long as you learn from them. And what enables them to be good teachers is that above all, they don’t brag. They are HUMBLE, and that humility shines through.

Sigh. Hopefully one day I can be like that
