Good point of view that I subscribe too.

I fully agree, you need to have a kind of very systematic and logical 
mindflow to be a really good programmer. When I took my "IT" courses, 
there were basically three kinds of people:

- Those who would never get the logic of programming. These people would 
already struggle with the most basic of programming tasks, like grasping 
the concept of If-Then-Else constructs, and the difference between 
something basic as a "While" or "For" loop. These kind of people were 
just suitable for programming
- Those who would get it "half". These people would be able to do basic 
programming tasks, but would generally not be able to do the more 
complicated ones without a lot of struggle. They would get stuck.
- Those who "got-it" and could perform high level programming and had 
absolutely no difficulty understanding the logic of programming.

Luckily, I was in the last group... but that doesn't mean the third 
group by default creates "good" software. Being a good programmer from a 
"usability" stand-point also requires you to be able to communicate and 
especially LISTEN. I think I was reasonably good at those points as well.
