A new theroem for the IT world at large

We have Moore’s Law

And Asimov’s Laws

And even Hellekson’s Law

I am proposing a new theorem, in the hopes that it will be accepted one day by my colleagues and considered a law of our land:

Duncan’s Theorem:

When being introduced to an IT professional for the first time, if that professional indicates the number of years they’ve “been working in IT” (or similar) within the first 3 minutes of conversation without prompting, their effectiveness as a colleague will be inversely proportional to the number of years experience they claim.
