You Are Just a "Tool" to Management
For a moment, forget about the fact that you are a super genius, and the rest of the world is full of comparative morons. We get it. We know it. We won’t even TRY to compete with you. So just for a moment, let’s pretend that you aren’t you. In fact, I’ll go so far as to say, let’s pretend you aren’t even human.
Now, imagine yourself in the shoes of someone hiring for an IT position. You have two "tools" in front of you. Which one will you pick: the one that is complicated as hell to understand, difficult to use, and causes you headaches, or the one that is easy to understand, interface with, pleasant, and still gets the job done?
Who would YOU hire: Mister, “I’ve been doing that for 30 years young pup” or Mister, “I can see your need and I have a lot of experience with that type of issue.”
The one fact you simply CANNOT get around is, despite IT folks’ best efforts, nobody’s figured out a way to remove the human factor from any IT equation (well, that is unless you believe in Terminator stories). What that means to you is, you simply cannot ignore your human skill set, or lack thereof. And, it doesn’t take a genius to master the basics.
