Signs you Work in UX

As I was reading through this article, I couldn’t believe how much I related to some of these points. Reposted and highlighted with the signs that I have personally experienced 😀

15 Signs you Work in UX

  1. You’re totally comfortable around one-way mirrors
  2. Redesigning a call center application sounds like fun to you
  3. Your spice rack is organized by frequency of use and is within arms-reach of the stovetop (and re-organized on a bi-weekly basis)
  4. You enjoy responding to questions with questions
  5. You wear a point-of-view camera when you go to the supermarket
  6. You take time to explain signage and labeling shortcomings to store clerks and airport attendants
  7. You rage at ambiguously designed traffic signals
  8. You actually read the manuals of things you buy, but only to look for errors and mistakes
  9. You can’t use any interactive device without analyzing its interface
  10. You still cannot explain your job in one sentence to your grandma (I got close.. I described it as “the psychology of User Interfaces and Interaction”, but then she didn’t know what a User Interface was!)
  11. To you, card sorting is not a poker trick
  12. You are immediately tempted to write an expert review whenever confronted with a weird check-out process
  13. Your mom is a persona
  14. A horrible user experience causes you physical pain
  15. You encounter online surveys while browsing the web and automatically start making screenshots
