We expect that experienced programmer has perfectly logical, rational and consistent mind (at least during working hours). However, my experience shows that programmer has the same brains and mind as other people. Programmers do stupid things, overreact and act inconsistently. Why?

Buddha compared rational and conscious part of the human mind to the rider of the wild elephant - your emotions, passions and desires. As in the real life riding - you can hold the reins, direct elephant to turn, stop or go... only until elephant allows you to do so and has no desires on its own. (from The Happiness Hypothesis)

A programmer's rider develops programs, a programmer's elephant hinders or inspires - and certainly makes the process slippery and unpredictable.
Three contradictions within human mind help us to understand these relations better.
