"aha!", hesitancy, confrontational

The "aha!" moment comes from realizing that there is no single
objective quantifiable measure of quality, but rather, as Wikipedia
puts it --
This definition stresses that quality is inherently subjective -
different people will experience the quality of the same software
very differently. One strength of this definition is the questions it
invites software teams to consider, such as "Who are the people
we want to value our software?" and "What will be valuable to them?"
When we stop chasing objectively measurable quality, we come back to
trying to satisfy specific people, I posit that helps us deliver more
appropriate, more profitable software.
