Editors asked their readers to submit six word memoirs of their life and were mesmerized with the offerings, some of which follow: The results have been humorous and edifying. Following are some of the six word responses describing being involved with innovation. Ideas; I get them in excess.

This decreases emotional reactivity, which can be a superpower. Conversely, let's say you're a quarterback.Still, it's not a duplicate question, since this asks about C/C++, whereas that other question asked about all languages, or none, in general.
