Sticktoitiveness and software development

I recently heard that there is a common character trait among many developers in that they won't stop working on a problem until they've solved it.

I've always identified as having a similar but different trait, I won't give up when trying to solve a problem.

I came to this trait as a result of some of my first jobs in the industry. Due to the internet and world being as they were, and in combination with the companies, teams, and projects I was working on/with, there was no option to say "I don't know how" and give up. The problem needed to be solved, there was no one to ask who might know, and so I had to figure it out. That's what I was there for. That's what I was paid for.
