Experience. I've teached CS at one time and we had functional programming as a mandatory course (toy simplified language, nothing too fancy). Small group of students took to it immediately and did everything in very short amount of time (later we added quite a bunch of optional tasks to make sure they'll have things to do in the course). Yet significant percentage of students were never able to do even simple things in the course without extereme struggles and it often looked that they employ “combinatorial programming” (shuffle symbols and variable names around till you'll get working program by some random chance). Many of them went on to become SWE.
