This sounds very similar to the effect that doing philosophy or math seem to have on people as well - getting very nit-picky about certain types of things, and trying to use metaphors from the discipline to explain things that they have no right to be able to explain.

Of course, there's going to be lots of things involved in coding that aren't involved in math or philosophy - mainly, working through lots of nitty-gritty details to make sure they all work out, even once you've already done ten other cases that work basically the same.
