As I was looking for a way, how to resolve it, I did not find it. But I did find a couple of interesting articles, that deal with the assumptions from the programmer perspective. But I think they are a fun and interesting reading also for people, that are not programmers. They just deal with assumptions we make about time and people's names.
Here are the links:
- Falsehoods Programmers Believe About Names
- Falsehoods programmers believe about time
- More falsehoods programmers believe about time
I think they are quick and fun read to remind each and every one of us, how many assumption do we make in everyday life, which they might not be true. Which might be important for the success in the life. Here is an interesting article, The Cook and the Chef: Musk’s Secret Sauce, that talks about the importance of dealing with assumptions on the case study of Elon Musk.
