You get to work with many people in your career. And many are great at what they do, but you hardly find people of great synergy with you. You don’t find it difficult to explain them things, you feel they can read between the lines and they understand your overall goals and intentions. That’s what make work enjoyable with such people. It’s not intelligence alone that matters, it’s the magical synergy with your team/colleague/partner that matters.
