Pretty good essay. At the risk of rationalizing and/or over generalizing, I think this personality archetype rings true for more than just the lisp community.

Coquelin is my definition of a team player full of silent impact. He's the most important player on the Arsenal team. If a second string striker had the same impact, it would be a much bigger story.
