.... which also can lead to the opposite effect: you end up changing the
same logic so often that time actually increases vs. the variant where
the absence of refactoring tools led you to do more thinking upfront and
start coding later.

Kind regards

Then you are my superior and I bow to you. As for me, I often find bugs
in the code that were clearly and solely due to my not thinking (enough)
while writing it, and at other times I my find myself in an impasse
because I didn't think ahead enough while coding.

At the same time, it may be due to my approach to designing -- I tend to
do about half of a design deductively (top-down) and the other half
inductively, bottom-up, by coding the thing and seeing whether it feels
natural and just falls into place. If it does, it means the design as a
whole is usually sound.
