Sadly, Brandon doesn't 'realize' this at all, he apparently believes that if

This is the crux of every problem Brandon has with educated adults.  If
something doesn't work out his way, or if people don't give him what he
wants (this week's wants that is), or he doesn't finish yet another hair
brained project, the problem is always somewhere other than himself.

He's the unluckiest genius-design crack-developer of games ever...
