One of the things that really helps me when coding in C++ with templates is I can easily visualize the result of the template expansion/instantiation as raw C++ (no templates)

When I'm coding in C++ I can visualize the equivalent C as I'm coding.

I can also to a degree, visualize the assembly. Not in any specific sense, but in a sort of pseudo-code like "I know when we're doing a shift, an add, and a push here" kind of thing.

I do this to a lesser degree in C# even, when I'm considering performance. I think about C++ code required to get it to do the same thing - but like I said to a lesser degree.

Do you do this? I'm just curious. It feels like such a blessing sometimes.
To err is human. Fortune favors the monsters.
