Study confirms that to maximize novelty and scientific progress use “the stereotypical model of a successful scientific team envisions a brash, young scientist — brimming with untested insights — paired together with the wiser, older scientist with the judgment to help guide and encourage the young scientist"

I wonder if there is a similar study for programmers. There's a commonly used model of pairing bold and fast young programmers with more experienced programmers who may be able avoid a lot of code written that turns out to be useless or problematic. I'd assume that yields better productivity, but it'd be good to see that confirmed.
