One of the popular bits of psycho-garbage I hate to encounter is the adage that "You can make yourself be happy". Well, it's true that you can adjust your expectations. But I can also keep my head out of water by paddling while wearing a weight belt. So? It's extra work, and who needs extra work? It wears you out and keeps you from being as effective as you might otherwise be. It saps your reserve energy and shortens the time before you go under. Who needs it? If there's a way to remove the "weights", try it.
How have you expanded your knowledge or technical understanding recently?
Good questions Billy. I think overloading and overriding is one of the easiest questions from that pool. In an interview I had, they asked me if I knew the differences between EJB 1.1 and EJB 2.0. After telling them about local interfaces, I was asked to explain what exactly was the advantage of using them.

Andres, I got the same question in tech interview with the outfit that hired me. I mentioned that, CMP differences, then talked about how cool MDB's are.
It's a situational thing, but sometimes showing a little enthusiasm can help a lot.
