Do you also use static code analysis? Do you find that static code
analysis finds many types of bugs that compilation could not find?

Do you always write use unit tests for the code you write? For the
existing code you change? Do you specify the unit tests so that they
each assert one specific thing about the function's behaviour, and fail
unambiguously when that's not the observed behaviour?

Do you aim for complete unit test coverage of all branches in your code?
Do you treat un-covered code as dangerously unpredictable code?

If your answer is “no” to any of those, I think you may have a good
answer to your overall question :-)
