Hell yes. The problem (IME) is that hipsters don't have the phrase "I don't know" in their vocabulary, and so more often than not blunder through things not really knowing what they are doing. Greybeards on the other hand are perfectly willing (again IME) to admit what they don't know and get someone who does know to do it.
