While I can't take much credit for this, I saw it and thought it was appropriate. Most of what I write is from the perspective of a business owner and consultant. It's rare that I put something up that harkens back to the days when I was an overworked network admin serving multiple facilities, dozens of users and multi-platform environments to the point of mental exhaustion. So this post goes out to all the Net Admins, DevOps folks, IT Directors or de-facto "IT Guy/Girl" that feels the technical disconnect from a different perspective. It's a smart and funny infographic, something that I'll probably share with the youth and adults I meet who are interested in a career in IT. Re-posted from this online article from Techopedia.

In some companies, the IT guy is expected to be a jack of all trades, tackling jobs from security tosystems administration and everything in between. The problem is, not all IT workers are alike, and they don't all have the same qualifications. This humorous infographic from IT operations management company ORSYP looks at some of the common stereotypes and misconceptions that tend to plague IT employees. Of course, it doesn't fail to point out the way IT personnel stereotype their less tech-savvy peers!
