They like to solve problems and make things better. Whether it's building the Linux kernel or writing Java code, there is a thrill with making something work. Setting up rules, procedures, and processes to regulate such activities can be counter intuitive for some individuals. They might feel constrained and even have their very agility jeopardized when delivering a solution.
