What else does Don Quixote mean?

  • A person who is extremely rational in teamwork situations and takes control of the project by sheer will, rather than through competence, and steers it in a way that guarantees its failure. Background: Don Quixote, the literary Don Quixote had an inclination to act in a way that was completely outlandish and without having thought it through. People were reluctant to stop him because he was only a couple of cans away from a six-pack. (in Community Dictionary, added by Logan Browning)
