an unfair characterization of user experience professionals
Three personalities in the user experience community
This article is about how I stereotype people in the user experience community. It’s not very nice to stereotype or categorize people. But, Ux people are in the business of it. Most of our user models like personas, roles, and profiles help to generalize our understanding of our users. It’s only fair to turn that back in on ourselves.
I generally use three categorizations – before-people, during-people, and after-people.
