This paper looks into the reasons for an apparent boycott of theoretically proven structured techniques and methodologies by most developers. It begins by discussing the fact that when a methodology for developing software contradicts with the way human brains solves problems, the result is stress and hence burnout to he software engineer. Points that explain the boycott are identified and explained. The paper then proposes further study considerations needed to improve the use of structured tools.
