User Experience practitioners come from a variety of backgrounds among them psychologists, designers, Human Computer Interaction grads, Information Architects as well as others.
We share many common traits as well as being big sharers of our knowledge, experience and tips. We care about the end result and about other people.
It doesn’t matter how we got here. What matters is why we do it. Even though we may occasionally be the end user, we know that there are other types. Our opinion as an end user is only one voice among many, many others. In our work we come across a lot of methods, tools and processes but in the end these too are not important. They change and improve with time, so no point being precious about them.
It is being the reasonable voice we need to be precious about.
